Echo

Due to the recent CDC recommendations in this extraordinary time, we have decided to comply and reschedule the spring ECHO performances (March 28, 29 and April 26). Orpheus Reimagined (March performance) will move to September 13 in conjunction with our Fall season and we hope to move Nashville Concerto Orchestra (April performance) to 2021. If you have purchased ECHO tickets, you have been notified via email with your options.

The ECHO Fall season will go on as planned on Sept. 13, Oct. 11, and Nov. 21 & 22. We are very disappointed to cancel these Spring dates, however the safety of our community and performers is paramount. We are committed to doing our part to flatten the curve of COVID-19 in this evolving crisis.

Thank you.

ARTIST IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM

ARTIST IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM

Nashville Metro Archives’ Audiovisual Heritage Center (AVHC), in collaboration with Centennial Park Conservancy and the Parthenon, are pleased to announce the second annual Archives Artist in Residence (AIR) Program. This unique program explores the roles of artist and archivist and seeks to break down walls between archives and the communities they serve.

One artist in 2020 will be invited to incorporate historic audiovisual recordings at the AVHC in the creation of a new work to premiere at the Parthenon as part of Centennial Park Conservancy’s ECHO chamber music series series. The artist will work with Metro archivists to choose endangered analog audiovisual materials for preservation, some of which have not been seen in decades. The artist will collaborate with a composer and an ensemble from the ECHO series that will create a sound / music element for the new work.
