Women’s Suffrage Centennial Celebration Featuring the Nashville Symphony
September 10 - September 12
Join the Nashville Symphony for this season-opening program commemorating the centennial of the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote in national elections. Dedicated to the women and men who worked in support of ratification, this concert features the world premiere of a work co-commissioned by the Nashville Symphony from Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Julia Wolfe. The work is being written for full orchestra and Boston-based women’s vocal group, Lorelei Ensemble. This concert will also celebrate the legacy of American composer Florence Price with a performance of her Piano Concerto in One Movement, written in 1934, featuring soloist Karen Walwyn.
