Honey and Rue with the Nashville Philharmonic Orchestra
Sun., February 26, 4:00 pm-6:00 pm| Free
In celebration of Black History Month in February, the Nashville Philharmonic Orchestra will perform two concerts that showcase the powerful poetry of Nobel laureate Toni Morrison in the song cycle Honey and Rue by André Previn. With rhythms of jazz, blues and overtones of spirituals, this cycle speaks to the black, outsider experience from a female perspective. The program is bookended by an orchestral transcription of J.S. Bach’s “Toccata and Fugue in D Minor” and Tchaikovsky’s “Symphony #2” with its folk song roots.
The orchestra is supported in part by grants from the Metro Nashville Arts Commission and the Tennessee Arts Commission. All Nashville Philharmonic performances are free and open to the public.
