In the 2018-2019 season, IRIS Orchestra is introducing two different series: the traditional Orchestral Series at the Germantown Performing Arts Center on Saturday evenings and now a new Chamber Music Series at the Brooks Museum on Sunday afternoons. In true IRIS Orchestra fashion, both series will feature incredible guest artists alongside IRIS musicians. The Saturday Series will consist of five concerts featuring the following artists: renown violinist Midori, the University of Memphis Chorus, classical accordionist Hanzhi Wang, inspiring pianist Inon Barnatan, and up-and-coming violinist Itamar Zorman. The Sunday Series will consist of four concerts with the same guest artists (excluding the University of Memphis in December). Subscriptions are available for one or both series now.

IRIS ARTIST FELLOWS
For the third year, the IRIS Artist Fellowship residency program offers emerging musicians a year of outstanding performance experience alongside guided opportunities to exercise their passion for community service through music education. Chosen through national auditions, this year’s Fellows are Carrington Truehart, cello and Rosa Ortega, viola. Together they keep a busy schedule mentoring young musicians in Memphis area schools, creating community-building music opportunities, and performing as members of IRIS Orchestra and as a chamber ensemble.
SUNDAY CHAMBER SERIES
Next season, in addition to the Saturday evening orchestral performances at GPAC, IRIS Orchestra will offer a Sunday afternoon chamber music series at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art. Beginning in October 2018, this chamber series will feature the same fabulous guest artists from the Saturday evening orchestral series in addition to a smaller ensemble of IRIS orchestra musicians. Please note: the Saturday series and Sunday series are separate and will not feature the same repertoire. To purchase a subscription to either/both series, please call the IRIS Orchestra office at (901) 751-7669.
