\We are delighted to announce the Gateway Chamber Orchestra’s 2015-16 Season: Our City. The GCO presents its four-concert Masterworks Series for our home audience in Clarksville and for our exciting first season in our new home, the Franklin Theatre. This season the GCO will perform the Tennessee premiere of Elegy, written over 60 years ago by celebrated Clarksville native Clarence Cameron White. We also bring you distinctive new compositions written for the GCO by Middle Tennessee composers Jeffrey Wood and Cristina Spinei. A focal point of the season is the unveiling of Mannahatta, a new work by talented American composer Judd Greenstein, commissioned in partnership with the Detroit Symphony and North Carolina Symphony. Timeless masterpiece favorites, including Mozart’s Symphony No. 40, Beethoven’s Eroica Symphony, and Ravel’s ballet score Mother Goose, have been carefully chosen to complement these stunning new works.


Join us for the 2015-16 season as we celebrate Our City!


The Gateway Chamber Orchestra is quickly emerging as one of America's leading ensembles. Conducted by Gregory Wolynec, the GCO specializes in the programming of masterworks of the past and present. The ensemble gave its debut in the fall of 2008 and is comprised of the talented performance faculty of Austin Peay State University and fellow professional musicians from Nashville and beyond. Their recordings have been lauded by the American Record Guide, Fanfare Magazine, and SA-CD.net among others. Performing regularly in APSU’s acoustically splendid concert hall and other venues, the GCO has presented works ranging from contemporary American composers William Bolcom and Ellen Taaffe Zwilich to traditional repertoire by Schubert, Mozart, and Haydn.
