NASHVILLE SYMPHONY CHORUS

For more than half a century, the Nashville Symphony Chorus has presented significant works from the classical choral repertoire, from the Baroque to the contemporary.

The chorus was formed in 1963 by Nashville Symphony music director Willis Page to sing Handel’s Messiah. In the years since, the ensemble has been featured on several of the orchestra’s recordings, including Beethoven’s Missa solemnis, Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, John Corigliano’s A Dylan Thomas Trilogy, and Ravel’s L’Enfant et les Sortilèges, the last of which received a GRAMMY® nomination for Best Classical Album in 2009.

Now numbering more than 150 members under the leadership of current director Tucker Biddlecombe, the Nashville Symphony Chorus performs twice annually as part of the Nashville Symphony’s Aegis Sciences Classical Series, in addition to yearly performances of Messiah. The chorus also takes the spotlight each year at Voices of Spring, a concert dedicated to exploring the full range of choral repertoire.
