I’m in Chattanooga today for the world premiere of The Rose of Sonora, a violin concerto in five scenes. Written by composer George S. Clinton, I published an in-depth profile of the work back in March about how he and the concerto’s soloist, Holly Mulcahy, brought the concerto to life.
If you’re in the Chattanooga area, you absolutely want to make it here for the concert. Tickets are going fast but you can check online to see what’s still available. I’ll try to grab some good photos of the event and the after-party for a follow-up after I’m back in Chicago.
