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.

George and Sharon Mabry Concert Hall
HAYDN "Farewell" Symphony
This Family Concert is based on the humorous book written by Anna Celenza, which tells the story of musicians who long to go home. Also well known for her work on National Public Radio, the author will narrate this story. Pre-concert children's activities will include an instrumental petting zoo and craft projects, which will begin at 2 p.m. in the Music/Mass Communication Building on the campus of Austin Peay State University. The Family & Children's Concert Series is generously sponsored by Planters Bank.
We are thrilled to work with Anna Celenza; incorporating her talents, the GCO offers a fun introduction to great music for students and their families. Our inviting atmosphere combined with family-friendly pricing brings entertaining cultural arts to our community.
