CSO presents Beatles, Beethoven, Brahms, and Baroque
During October, the Chattanooga Symphony & Opera will present three different concerts spanning a wide range of music. This October, there is a concert for everyone!
The first concert of October and the kickoff to the Luken Holdings Pops Series is The Beatles: Revolver/Rubber Soul presented on October 6 at 8pm in the Tivoli. CSO Favorites, Jeans ‘n Classics, return to the Tivoli stage, conducted by Music Director Emeritus Robert Bernhardt, to bring some of the Beatles’ greatest hits! Voted number 3 and number 5 in Rolling Stones Top 500 albums of all time, Revolver and Rubber Soul include classics like “Eleanor Rigby,” “Girl,” “Nowhere Man,” and of course, “Yellow Submarine!”
Award-winning pianist Alexander Schimpf will join the CSO on Saturday, October 20 at 8pm for a concert of Mozart, Beethoven, and Brahms. The concert opens with one of Mozart's last works, Overture to The Magic Flute, a charming piece. The finale piece, Brahm’s Symphony No. 2 in D Major, is “brilliant yet warm, and I believe the 2nd movement is one of the most beautiful and heart-wrenching movements in the history of symphonic works,” says Music Director Kayoko Dan.
Over the past several years, Alexander Schimpf has risen to prominence by impressively winning a series of competitions, including First Prize at the 2009 International Beethoven Competition in Vienna, and most recently emerged as the first German pianist ever to win First Prize at the prestigious Cleveland International Piano Competition, playing the Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 4 which he will perform with the CSO.
The CSO Chamber Series opens on October 28 at 3pm in the Silver Ballroom of the Sheraton Read House with Basically Baroque. Works by Baroque master composers Bach and Telemann as well as pieces by CPE Bach and Albinoni are on the program. CSO Principal Viola, Robert Elder, is a featured soloist on this concert. Music Director Dan will also pull out her flute and join CSO Principal Flute, Janet Hale, for Telemann’s Canonic Sonata for Two Flutes.
Tickets for The Beatles: Revolver/Rubber Soul and Beethoven & Brahms start at $19. Tickets for Basically Baroque are $20. To purchase tickets or for more information, contact the CSO Box Office at 423.267.8583 or visit www.chattanoogasymphony.org.

"HERCULES" - DWAYNE JOHNSON
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Dwayne Johnson remembers the first time he ever encountered the idea of Hercules. He was five years old and he saw a poster of Steve Reeves as Hercules breaking chains from pillars. Johnson says at the time, he didn't know anything about the myth of Hercules. He just thought it was a cool picture. Now it's his turn to bring the myth to life. Johnson plays a modern version in "Hercules," which opens today.
Dwayne Johnson says he never thought Hercules should be a young man.

ALEC BALDWIN ADMONISHED TO "BE A GOOD BOY"
NEW YORK (AP) -- It sounded more like a warning a parent might give a wayward child -- not something a judge would say to a grown man. But that's the admonition Alec Baldwin got from a judge in New York City yesterday. The actor was in court to face charges of mouthing off at police who stopped him while riding a bike. After examining the allegations against him, Manhattan Criminal Court Judge John DeLury told Baldwin: "looks like you have a short fuse." Baldwin repeatedly said he'd pay the fine, but the judge said he only wanted the actor to apology. The judge set the case to be dismissed if Baldwin stays out of trouble for six months. Speaking to the actor with his given name, DeLury asked Baldwin: "Can you stay out of trouble, Alexander?" Baldwin responded: "Sure, sure" -- then the judge told him: "Be a good boy from now on. Have a good day!" before adjourning the case.
SHIA LaBEOUF SEEKS RESOLUTION OF CASE
NEW YORK (AP) -- Shia LeBeouf has another court date set for September in an incident in which he's accused of acting out while in the audience of a Broadway play last month. The actor's lawyer and prosecutors are trying to hash out a settlement over the incident in which LeBeouf lit cigarettes, yelled at actors onstage and cursed security guards. As he was ushered out of the theater, he hollered: "Do you know who I am." LeBeouf's publicist says the episode stemmed from an alcohol problem -- and that the actor has since gotten treatment.
