Chattanooga Symphony & Opera Presents Program Featuring Principal Musicians, Female Composers

The Chattanooga Symphony & Opera will present Mozart & More on Sunday, January 12 at 3:00 pm at the Chattanooga State Humanities Theatre. Part of the 2019/20 Chamber Series, this special performance will feature pieces selected by the principal musicians of the CSO, including prestigious French composer Elsa Barraine’s Ouvrage de Dame, Mozart’s charming Quintet for piano and winds, contemporary American composer Libby Larsen’s “boogie-woogie” inspired Four on the Floor, and Theme and Variations for flute and strings by Amy Beach, one of America’s most renowned early composers.

“This intimate chamber concert will feature the core members of the Chattanooga Symphony & Opera and Principal Keyboard Alan Nichols,” says Kayoko Dan, Music Director. “The program includes Mozart’s beloved string quartet along with works by three female composers – Elsa Barraine, Amy Beach, and Libby Larsen. This season, we have a new Principal Oboe, Jessica Smithorn, and this will be a great opportunity to get to know her in an intimate musical setting.”

Seating for the concert is general admission. Tickets are $28 and can be purchased by calling the CSO Box Office at 423.267.8583 or by visiting the CSO’s website at chattanoogasymphony.org. Ticket-holders are invited to attend a post-concert talk immediately following the performance.
