Nashville Symphony returns Friday

GLASGOW — The Nashville Symphony will return Friday for another community concert on Glasgow’s public square, marking the third time the symphony has given a local performance.

The symphony, under the direction of Kelly Corcoran, will play a variety of musical selections including some patriotic tunes, as well as works by Brahms and Tchaikovsky, among other composers.

“It will be fun and light-hearted and very casual, and just a great way to get outside and hear some great music,” Corcoran said.

The symphony does several community concerts, like the one coming up later this week, during the summer months.

“We have a whole community concert series that we do throughout middle Tennessee this time of year,” she said. “We really feel strongly about bringing music out into the community and providing free concerts.”

Of all the places the symphony travels for community concerts, Glasgow may be the farthest distance it travels, she said.

Corcoran recalled the Glasgow community being very receptive to the symphony when it performed in 2011.

“The audience was so wonderful and receptive and it was just a great community,” she said. “It’s exciting for us to be able to go somewhere where we are welcomed like that and to be able to bring this kind of music making to a community.”
