In the third concert of the 2019-20 Masterworks Series, the Gateway Chamber Orchestra will perform ‘Gran Partita’ on January 27. The GCO tugs at heartstrings in this concert featuring GCO cellist, Meghan Berindean. Works from Felix Mendelssohn and Jacques Ibert Llead up to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s powerful Gran Partita serenade, a signature work for the GCO that was featured on our debut recording and received national media praise.
The concert will be held on Monday, January 27 at 7:30 p.m. at the Franklin Theatre. Individual ticket prices range from $25 to $40 with discounts given to students and active-duty military or reserve. Tickets are on sale now at gatewaychamberorchestra.com.
The Masterworks Series explores established masterworks, overlooked treasures, and works by contemporary American composers. This season, titled ‘Emotion Abounds,’ presents a slate of powerful and emotional programs featuring favorite composers of the GCO, including Mozart, Schubert, Schoenburg, and, of course, Haydn, who will be celebrated in the annual ‘America’s Haydn Festival’ on April 6, 2020. The season will culminate with the 2nd annual ‘BBQ, Brews & Beethoven’ featuring Copland’s ‘Appalachian Spring,’ local craft beer and delicious BBQ.
The GCO is a nationally-recognized cultural institution committed to enriching lives through innovative concerts, distinctive recordings, and inspiring educational programs. Conducted by Gregory Wolynec, the GCO performs in two permanent homes – the George & Sharon Mabry Concert Hall on the campus of Austin Peay State University in Clarksville and The Franklin Theatre in Franklin.
