UTC Symphony Orchestra Spring Concert
March 30 at 7:30 pm
The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Symphony Orchestra will present its spring concert as a free livestreamed event at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 30.
The concert will open with UTC alumnus and award-winning local composer Ethan McGrath’s “Fantasia on Sacred Harp Tunes.”
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with UTC alumnus Ethan McGrath on several occasions,” explained orchestra conductor Sandy Morris.
“Ethan’s music transcends the notes on the page and speaks to one’s soul. His “Fantasia on Sacred Harp Tunes” connects us with the ‘shaped-note’ style of singing that was prevalent in the Deep South but with contemporary harmonies that add to its beauty.”
Also on the program are the first two movements of Franz Schubert’s Symphony No. 9 in C Major, “The Great.”
