The Gateway Chamber Orchestra is quickly emerging as one of America's leading ensembles. Conducted by Gregory Wolynec, the GCO specializes in the programming of masterworks of the past and present. The ensemble gave its debut in the fall of 2008 and is comprised of the talented performance faculty of Austin Peay State University and fellow professional musicians from Nashville and beyond. Their recordings have been lauded by the American Record Guide, Fanfare Magazine, and SA-CD.net among others. Performing regularly in APSU’s acoustically splendid concert hall and other venues, the GCO has presented works ranging from contemporary American composers William Bolcom and Ellen Taaffe Zwilich to traditional repertoire by Schubert, Mozart, and Haydn.

Season V:
Voyage in Versatility

We are delighted to unveil the 2014-15 Season, full of exciting collaborations and programs that showcase the vast scope of the GCO, Middle Tennesse's own world-class orchestra. The Masterworks Subscription Series will include collaborations with two distinguished guest artists in Mozart’s sublime Clarinet Concerto with world-renowned clarinetist Charles Neidich and Berio’s enchanting Folk Songs with mezzo-soprano Teresa Buchholz, hailed for her “luminous” performance of Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde with the GCO in May 2013. Our two family concerts will feature celebrated children’s-book author Anna Celenza and GRAMMY® award-winning flutist Rhonda Larson.

This season, the GCO will cast off on the vast and varied world of classical music. Journey from the grandeur of Mendelssohn’s symphonic portrait of Scotland to the quiet simplicity of Copland’s Appalachian Spring. Soar from the stirring third symphony of French Romantic Louise Farrenc to the solemn dignity of Barber’s heavenly Adagio. Sail through the musical odyssey of Season V: Voyage in Versatility, with new and unexpected adventures in every concert.
