A tribute to Patsy Cline with Mandy Barnett and the Nashville Symphony
On November fourteenth at eight o'clock p.m. I attended a Patsy Cline tribute concert featuring Mandy Barnett and the Nashville Symphony with my grandparents. On that particular Friday night, it had been raining for most of the day. My grandparents came and picked me up at five o'clock in hopes of going to a nice dinner before the show. Once we got on the road, it was clear that our itinerary was not going to work out as we had planned it to. There was wreck after wreck, leaving most of the interstates backed up and some closed until late that night. We had to turn around and drive through Mount Juliet to make it to the concert right on time.
None of us had ever been to the symphony before, so we were not sure what to expect. Walking into the Schermerhorn Symphony Center took our breath away. It was absolutely gorgeous, and that was just the lobby! We sat in the lobby for about ten minutes before we could go into the performance hall, our excitement growing every second. They finally let us into the performance hall and escorted us to our seats. The hall was even more spectacular than the lobby.
Finally, after about thirty minutes of waiting for everyone to get to their seats and get settled, the symphony started to come out and take their place. They looked very classy, wearing white button up shirts and black slacks. The conductor, Albert George Shram came out after them, to introduce himself and the symphony. Mr. Shram brought life to the symphony, his eyes shining bright with passion for the music and doing what he loves.
Mr. Shram conducted as the symphony began to play their first number written by George Enesco when he was only nineteen years old, "Rumanian Rhapsody in A major, Op. eleven, No. One." Written in 1901, this rhapsody is one of Enesco's best known compositions. The score for this lively drinking song calls for two flutes, a piccalo, two oboes, an english horn, two clarinets, two bassoons, four french horns, four trumpets, three trombones, tampani plus three percussion, and two harps and strings. The partricular piece is very upbeat and outgoing. As the music continues the song continues to grow faster resulting in a vibrant folk dance. The Nashville symphony did a great job performing this piece and...
