Intersection musicians will perform at Centennial Park with Kidsville at the Parthenon every third Saturday in 2016, beginning June, 18. Musicians will interact with kids to explore how new music can expand our minds and ears. Craft your own rhythm instruments and more! Kidsville's mission is to utilize the arts and play to help educate Nashville's youth in the areas of music, nutrition, fitness, and literacy to enhance the development of healthy and successful futures for our city's youngest citizens.
INTERSECTION was thrilled with our second season, moving forward in our performance of contemporary classical music in Nashville for audiences of all ages. Our first program, Sea of Tonality, featured the music of Elliott Carter, Tina Tallon, Toru Takemitsu, Joby Talbot and Julia Wolfe, winner of the 2015 Pulitzer Prize in Music. Julia Wolfe was with us in Nashville for the performance of her accordion concerto, True Love.
Our second program, Mariachi, was a family concert that showcased the works of Mexican composers alongside the rich tradition of Mariachi music. Intersection musicians performed with Mariachi students from Glencliff High School and our composer ambassador, Cristina Spinei composed a new work, Forma, that explores how these traditions weave together.
Our third program, Key of Intensity, featured the Ondes Martenot, a French electronic instrument with an expressive, singing, haunting voice performing a range of repertoire including works by Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead. Marie Bernard & Estelle Lemire joined us from Montreal, and dancers from New Dialect created original choreography for the program. Our venues and other community partners and initiatives will be coming throughout the season!
