CLARKSVILLE, Tenn., April 29, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The Gateway Chamber Orchestra (GCO) presents its third America's Haydn Festival, a virtual concert series celebrating the music of the "Father of the Symphony" and the "Father of the String Quartet" composer Franz Joseph Haydn, on May 13th and 16th and May 20th and 23rd. America's Haydn Festival, sponsored by Google, features concerts by GCO, recognized for nuanced performances of Haydn; GRAMMY-nominated St. Lawrence String Quartet, considered North America's most expressive interpreters of Haydn; exuberant pianist Henry Kramer; celebrated children's author and musicologist Anna Harwell Celenza and emerging cellist Michael Samis. Hosted by Peabody Award-winning classical radio host, Bill McGlaughlin, the festival intends to raise the awareness and relevance of Papa Haydn's music for audiences today.

The Paramount Chamber Players, with guest artist Joshua Kovac, will kick off the ensemble’s 16th season with ‘Autumn Musicale,’ a virtual concert designed to bring a modicum of peace and healing to the audience during this time of social distancing.

In the spring, the choirs of the Mountain Empire Children’s Choral Academy switched to online weekly meetings for singing, instruction and fellowship. This fall, the choirs are taking their rehearsals outside in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
