A little help from our friends

Posted By on Thu, May 10, 2007 at 5:58 PM

Have you been looking for the chance to hear a concert at the Schermerhorn, but felt a little intimidated by the place and the music? Well, fear not, since the Nashville Symphony Orchestra is performing a concert tonight that is both free and approachable. At 8 p.m., the NSO will perform a side-by-side concert, one featuring Nashville musicians performing with four visiting musicians from the Orquesta Sinfonica de la UNCuyo in Mendoza, Argentina. The players (flutist Samira Musri, bassoonist Andrea Yurcic, clarinetist Sebastian Benenati and French horn player Alexander Takhmanov) have spent the week in Nashville as part of an orchestra exchange program. Tonight, they'll join the NSO for Copland's "Hoe Down," Beethoven's Egmont Overtur, Elgar's "Nimrod" from Enigma Variations, a movement from the Sibelius Violin Concerto, Lowry's Celebration Overture and Respighi's The Pines of Rome. Be there or be square.
