Filling a hole in Music City's musical offerings

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WMOT)  --  It’s hard to imagine even the smallest musical niche being ignored here in Music City, but Nashville Symphony Associate Conductor Kelly Corcoran thinks she’s found one.

Corcoran recently launched a non-profit dedicated to supporting a Contemporary Classical Music ensemble that she’s named Intersection. Corcoran says the group will be composed of 15 to 20 musicians drawn from local artists, as well as artists from across the country.

Corcoran says she’s aiming for a Goldilocks ensemble; not too big and not too small.
