CSO Youth Orchestra to Perform Winter Concert, 3/9CSO Youth Orchestra to Perform Winter Concert, 3/9
by BWW News Desk - Feb 28, 2015

February 25, 2015 – Chattanooga, TN The Chattanooga Symphony & Opera Youth Orchestras (CSOYO) continue their 2014/15 season on March 9 at 7:30pm at Brainerd Baptist Church with a concert performed by the CSOYO Symphony with Gary Wilkes conducting, featuring An American in Paris by George Gershwin and Polovtsian Dances by Alexander Borodin. Gershwin's orchestral masterpiece, featured in the MGM movie of the same title, takes us musically through the streets and shops of Paris as American tourists gawk and take in the wonderful sights, from the Eiffel Tower to Montmartre (listen for the French taxi horns). Borodin's wonderful dances from his opera Prince Igor are still delightful to listeners today. It is Russian music at its best with beautiful exotic melodies and powerful rhythms. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Raissa Katona Bennett & Kenneth Gartman's Frenetic Homage to Late 20th Century Movie Music Doesn't Quite Lift Us Up Where We BelongBWW Reviews: Raissa Katona Bennett & Kenneth Gartman's Frenetic Homage to Late 20th Century Movie Music Doesn't Quite Lift Us Up Where We Belong
by Remy Block - Feb 24, 2015

Veteran cabaret performer Raissa Katona Bennett and Musical Director Kenneth Gartman are very good friends who for the past few years have been performing together in what might be called the cabaret equivalent of movie shorts. But with 3Decades in the Dark: Raissa and Kenneth Go to the Movies (a five-show run that ended Feb. 21 at the Laurie Beechman Theater), Bennett and Gartman have finally presented their first feature length duo cabaret show. Both performers have garnered praise as individual performers in musical theater and cabaret. Bennett, who is the charming producer and host of the Award-winning Concerts for City Greens at Tudor City, once played Christine in Phantom of the Opera, and has performed solo shows at venues such as the old Feinstein's. Gartman, who recently musically directed The White City in concert at 54 Below, presented a highly praised solo show in 2011. Sounds like a match made in cabaret heaven, right? (more...)
