ETSO Presents “Dvorak and Tchaikovsky” at Collegedale Commons Oct. 28

COLLEGEDALE, Tenn. (October 22, 2018) — The East Tennessee Symphony Orchestra welcomes a change in seasons with its fall concert “Dvorak and Tchaikovsky” on October 28, at 7 p.m. The free family-friendly event will take place in the new Founders Hall at the Collegedale Commons located on Swinyar Drive in Collegedale.

ETSO conductor Jeremy Francisco leads the orchestra with Nathan Francisco on cello in a concert lineup featuring Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations, and Dvorak’s Carnival Overture and Symphony No. 9 “From the New World.”

Mathew Miller, executive director of the ETSO, says he looks forward to the symphony’s debut performance at Founders Hall as well as future performances at the new community venue.

“Thanks to the collaborative efforts of the Collegedale community, the ETSO can expand upon its mission to bring world-class symphonic performances to the East Tennessee Valley,” says Mathew Miller, executive director of the ETSO. “We’re excited, humbled and honored to help christen this new and unique venue. The Founders Hall is a beautiful multipurpose structure that will serve the greater Chattanooga community well into the distant future.”

Miller says the ETSO remains hopeful that the completion of the Founders Hall will serve as a catalyst to spur the next phase of on-site development at the Collegedale Commons – a world-class outdoor amphitheater.
