Dear Classical Music Lovers,
The Spring Hill Orchestra’s upcoming Fall Frenzy week will be one to rival all others. We have a special week full of concerts that you won’t want to miss!
Highlights for the week include guest musicians from the Filamônica Femina of São Paulo, Brazil, the world premiere of orchestral work Emergence by local composer JUDITH MARKOVICH, and Italian talent Chantal Balestri performing GRIEG’S Piano Concerto. For the grand finale the SHO will pull out all the stops (literally!) with organist Greg Tulenko performing the magnificent second movement of Saint-Saëns Symphony No. 3 (Organ).
All events are free but donations are greatly appreciated!

Brazilian Chamber Concerts
THURSDAY, Oct 24, 2pm- Spring Hill Public Library
FRIDAY, Oct 25, 11am- Williamson Co. Public Library
The Filarmônica Feminina of São Paulo, Brazil will be playing these two concerts at the Spring Hill and Williamson co libraries. They are touring locally and the Filarmônica Feminina Chiquinha Gonzaga is a newly-formed chamber orchestra, born from the idea of uniting women to play classical music. Their first project is inspired by the Brazilian author Mario de Andrade who describes their nation as a fusion of white, Indian, and black culture. Music chosen for their Tennessee debut features a repertoire from works by well-known Brazilian composers, folk songs, and the indigenous dance of the Caiapó tribe.
