Trevecca Symphony Orchestra to perform March 13

The Trevecca Symphony Orchestra, celebrating its twentieth year of existence as a viable college/community musical ensemble, invites all Trevecca alumni and friends within driving distance of campus, to join the orchestra in a landmark performance in the convocation center of the Boone Business Buidling on Thursday, March 13, 7:30 P.M.

The concert will feature some of the TSO favorites from seasons past: Copland’s “Fanfare for the Common Man”, Respighi’s “Pines of Rome” and “The Planets” by Gustav Holst. Also featured will be the two winners of the Aria and Concerto Competitions. The evening will be climaxed by a reception honoring the musicians who make the TSO possible.The performance will be free and open to the public.

Typically numbering 60-65 members, the TSO performs seven concerts per season; a pops, two classical, two chamber, and two choral. The ensemble performs on the university campus and various other locations throughout Middle Tennessee. The TSO, since its conception, has been composed of entirely volunteer community and Trevecca players encompassing a wide variety of vocations.    

In 2006, 30 members of the orchestra embarked on a European Concert Tour to Germany, Austria, and the Czech Republic, the first such tour for the ensemble. The tour was highlighted by a performance, by invitation, in Magdeburg, Germany, Nashville’s Sister City.  The TSO anticipates returning to Europe in the summer of 2009.
