Review: Nashville Symphony presents Carmina Burana [Music City Review]

EarRelevant Staff | 6 JUN 2019

EarRelevant’s Mark Gresham went to the national conference of the League of American Orchestras in Nashville earlier this week. He was was scheduled to review a performance by the Nashville Symphony on Monday night, nut the Greyhound bus he was riding was six hours late, arriving in Nashville an hour and a half after the concert began. We regret not being able to offer his take on the concert, although his report about the conference itself is forthcoming.

Despair not: We will not leave our EarRelevant readers without a review of that season-ending program by the Nashville Symphony, We offer below a link to another review from the performance held on Saturday, June 1, published by Music City Review.


Led by music director Giancarlo Guerrero, the gala concert featured the Nashville Symphony, Nashville Ballet, Nashville Symphony Chorus and the Blair Children’s Chorus, plus three vocal soloists: soprano Valentina Farcas, tenor John Logan Wood and baritone Stephen Powell. The program included Sixth Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman by Joan Tower, the Symphony No. 4 of Jonathan Leshnoff, and Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana.
