The fourth season for Intersection continues existing partnerships, explores new musical ground and showcases great contemporary classical music while also recognizing the power of this music to build community and deepen our understanding of our current world.
In August, we celebrate the music of the great film composer Ennio Morricone in a festive outdoor concert designed to merge beauty and the unknown virtuosity of his chamber works. In October, Intersection plans to present Veils and Vesper by John Luther Adams. This six-hour sound installation allows for transformative, meditative reflection. Intersection is here to share the music of living composers with Nashville and this is our first time presenting a work of this scope. January provides a world premiere of a newly commissioned work by Jonathan Bailey Holland as well as the Nashville premiere of Joel Thompson’s Seven Last Words of the Unarmed in partnership with Fisk University and Choral Arts Link. In March, we bring Richard Danielpour to town along with two Iranian musicians - Shahab Paranj and Sohrab Pournazzeri - for a program celebrating Kurdish and Persian music. Finally, in May, we plan to present Rabbits and Babbits, a family concert featuring the music of Milton Babbit alongside other imaginative works.
Connectivity - the ability to connect successfully with others. Our aim is to present these musical works in a way where they can connect with you and touch you - expanding your perspectives and experiences, reimagining what music is and the power of sound to express our world. We’ve crafted a season that explores synthetic sound, diverse cultures, social justice, nature and varied compositional techniques. We also continue our work building Contempo Kids, and performing monthly at Kidsville and Room in the Inn.
This is an exciting season for us and we thank you for your support in bringing new music to Nashville. Our mantra is "Ears Wide Open" - we are listening! Tell us what you think and what you want to hear in Nashville as we continue our goal of “connectivity”.
