Live in Studio C: Nashville Concerto Orchestra

Jun 23, 2016

The Nashville Concerto Orchestra is a new ensemble made up of musicians of various experience levels, all pitching in to give local players a chance to perform concertos. Founder Roger Weismeyer modeled it on a group in San Francisco, and the premise is simple: Whether they're pros or amateurs, instrumentalists who play four concerts in a supporting role earn the opportunity to become a featured soloist. The group's first concert is at noon Saturday at Edgehill United Methodist Church. Members of the group brought a single concerto from that program to discuss and perform in Studio C.

Set list:

Johann Sebastian Bach: Violin concerto in a, BWV 1041

  • Zach Casebolt, principal violin
  • David Davidson, violin
  • Katelyn Westergaard, violin
  • Kris Wilkinson, viola
  • Larisa Maestro, cello
  • David Bender, double bass
  • Roger Weismeyer, piano
