CSO opens new season with Shostakovich, Rachmaninoff




The Chattanooga Symphony & Opera opens its 87th season at the Tivoli Theatre on Thursday, Sept. 26, 7:30 p.m., with “Shostakovich & Rachmaninoff.”

Guest pianist Steven Lin will perform Rachmaninoff’s “Piano Concerto No. 3” – one of the greatest and most challenging piano concertos of its time, CSO Musical Director Kayoko Dan says.

The performance will also include Shostakovich’s melancholic and introspective “Symphony No. 6” and American composer Emma Lou Diemer’s “Homage to Tchaikovsky.”

The CSO will honor the memory of its late bass trombonist, Michael Carver, as well.

Tickets: 423 267-8583, chattanoogasymphony.org. Discounts are available for students and music educators.
