The Chattanooga Symphony and Opera continues to inspire, engage, and enrich the greater Chattanooga community as it enters its 84th season. In addition to Masterworks, Pops, Chamber, and special event concerts, the CSO will produce their first fully-staged opera in 7 years with Puccini’s Madame Butterfly. Conducted by Music Director Kayoko Dan, the CSO consists of top players from the Chattanooga area as well as from across the southern region. Well known for its education and engagement events, the musicians of the CSO perform to more than 20,000 students each year throughout the greater Chattanooga Community.
The CSO season opens September 22, 2016 at the Tivoli Theatre. The concert includes Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 performed by Lee University’s visiting artist Ning An and includes a Champagne reception following the performance for all ticket holders.
