Events

Masterworks Series

The GCO’s four-concert Masterworks Series debuted in 2010 and is currently presented on Sunday afternoons in Clarksville and Monday evenings in Franklin. Our unique programming philosophy combines beloved masterworks, overlooked gems and works by American composers. At the core of our artistry is a delightfully nuanced approach to Classical masters Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven. This historic grounding helps to illuminate a vast range of composers and styles for audience and performers alike. Our innovative programming also presents overlooked composers such as C.P.E. Bach, Franz Schreker and Louis Spohr as well as American composers from the long established to the newly emerging.

Family & Children

GCO Family and Children’s programming debuted in the fall of 2012 and has grown into a two-program series in Clarksville with a debut program for the Franklin community planned for spring 2018. These matinee programs feature pre-concert opportunities for musical exploration in our instrumental “petting zoo” and craft projects designed for children. Partnerships with visual artists Black & Jones and author Anna Celenza provide children of all ages the opportunity to engage with great music in a multimedia environment. These programs cover a wide range of literature from classic family fare such as Peter and the Wolf and Carnival of the Animals to classical staples such as Haydn symphonies and Vivaldi’s Four Seasons to more recent works like Rhapsody in Blue and a new work by Conni Ellisor.

Winter Baroque

The annual Winter Baroque program is presented on the first Sunday afternoon of December at the Madison Street United Methodist Church in Clarksville. This program brings together the GCO and its Chamber Choir for works by luminaries J.S. Bach, Handel and Vivaldi and rarely heard fare by composers such as Charpentier and Monteverdi.
