Classical Music is facing a crisis. Yes! I know you have heard this before, and I can feel your eyes rolling towards the ceiling in annoyance. But, there is good news! People are fighting back and trying to create new ensembles for new music. Conductor, Kelly Corcoran has a vision for a new contemporary music ensemble in Nashville, Tennessee, which has long been known as the bastion for country and folk music. Nashville has attracted some of the finest musicians in the world, and now it is time for Nashville to be known for new classical music. Intersection is the one of new ensembles that you can help support. From their mission statement, “Nashville is lacking a professional ensemble dedicated solely to the performance, creation and cultivation of contemporary classical music. No one in Nashville is presenting this new music in a non-traditional way, truly breaking down boundaries with explorative, avant-garde contemporary programming geared for audiences of varying ages. Contemporary music is a vital piece of a truly diverse, thriving music city. “ Here here!
