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.
