New this year, the IRIS Artist Fellowship residency program offers emerging musicians a year of outstanding performance experience alongside guided opportunity to exercise their passion for community service through music education. Chosen through national auditions, this year’s Fellows are Mariama Alcântara, violin; Ashley Vines, viola; and Ajibola Rivers, cello. Together they keep a busy schedule as the chamber ensemble called C3Strings. They can be seen and heard performing throughout the Greater Memphis area. The program will continue in the 2017-2018 season and recruitment for a string quartet has already begun.


SAT @8 OR SUN @2

IRIS Orchestra now offers two performances of each concert program. The Saturday evening concert is repeated on Sunday afternoons at 2:00 PM. Featuring the same music, musicians, and guest artists as the evening concerts, the Sunday matinees create additional capacity while giving our audiences scheduling flexibility and the opportunity for upgraded seating. Either way, we will provide you with delightful entertainment which is reported to have both healing properties and a positive effect on mood and stress.


We welcome you to be a part of the IRIS Orchestra family. Sign up for our newsletter and stay up-to-date with all of our fantastic events.
