On Sunday, November 19th at 2:30pm, pianists David and Stephanie Northington will present a recital of music by Bach, Schubert, Beethoven, and Schubert. The concert is free and open to the public and will be given in the nave of the Church Street United Methodist Church on Henley Street in downtown Knoxville as part of the church's "Master Arts Series."  Works to be performed on the recital include Bach's "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring", Beethoven's Piano Sonata in G Major, Op.14, Franz Schubert's Fantaisie in F minor, Op.103, and selected Mazurkas by Frederic Chopin.

It's finally here--the release of the Big Ears Festival's 2018 lineup. Festival attendees will once again be transported to another world, filled with music, film, and art that's refreshing to the ears, the eyes, and the mind. The festival will, once again, take place over the span of four days (March 22-25) in most of the same downtown Knoxville venues as last year's event.  What is different is the focus on jazz and its subgenres, says Big Ears artistic director Ashley Capps.

In 1953, Dmitri Shostakovich broke the "curse of the 9th" by composing his tenth symphony. Widely regarded as his "greatest" symphony, Shostakovich was finally free to compose as he wished, as Stalin had died earlier that year and, along with him, his oppressive regime, which greatly restricted composers (along with other artists and musicians) with the music that they could create. Hidden within the work is a musical depiction of Stalin and cryptograms of Shostakovich's own name, as well as that of a suspected girlfriend.

The Oak Ridge Symphony Orchestra and Chorus begins its 2017/2018 season with a concert featuring "playful" music. The program is diverse and entertaining and is sure to please.

Knoxville's Marble City Opera opens its 2017/2018 season with a double-bill, presenting two one-act operas, both incorporating the telephone as a main character. Soprano and artistic-director, Kathryn Frady, will star in Francis Poulenc's one-woman show, The Human Voice, while soprano, Julia Metry and baritone, Peter Johnson share the stage in Gian Carlo Menotti's The Telephone. Pianist, Brandon Coffer, will fulfill the role of "orchestra" on the piano.
