After their Ryman debut with an amazing holiday show, "Sugar Plums," we couldn't wait to see what Nashville in Harmony had next up their sleeves.
Well, the wait is over. Nashville in Harmony kicks off rehearsals this weekend for the next big performance of the TENsational year. “TENsational: Choral Blast!” is perhaps the most exciting of the TEnsational performances since Nashville in Harmony will be joined by four Nashville vocal groups. The performance will take place at the Ryman Auditorium on March 4.
The groups include: Nashville Singers, Metro Nashville Chorus, Hunters Lane High School Chorale and the MLK Reunion Choir.
Specifically invited because of their diversity, their musical excellence, and their contribution to building community in Nashville, all five groups will take the Ryman stage separately to share their beautiful vocal gifts with music of their choosing.
All five groups will then blend their voices together as one to form a finale chorus of over 250 voices. This massive chorus will be under the direction of special guest conductor, Greg Gilpin, renowned choral composer who wrote Nashville in Harmony's signature song, "Why We Sing." In a city known for it’s music, and a venue known for historic performances, this will truly be a magical night worthy of Music City USA!
