Members of the Children of Crossville Chamber Orchestra and Director Becky Bull are ready for the season-opening concert at 7 p.m. Dec. 13 in the Palace Theatre.

The award-winning Children of Crossville Chamber Orchestra will perform its first concert of the season at 7 p.m. Dec. 13 at Crossville's Palace 

Theatre. 

COCCO is comprised of 20 students in grades 6-12 performing on violin, viola, cello and bass.

Tickets are $12 for adults, $5 for students.

COCCO will welcome its audience to a delightful venue of classical and video-themed selections, including Handel's Concerto Grosso in D major Op 6 #5 and music from Skyrim, Halo, Advent Rising and Hollow Knight from Hornet.

"I personally do not ever play video games, but the students have been after me for years to do this,” said Director Becky Bull. 

“I must admit some the music is really interesting. I think the audience will be very pleased whether they are video aficionados or not."

Of course there will be some surprises, too. 

The students, music instructors and board members of this nonprofit organization receive no salaries or federal funding of any type. Any monies received come from contributions from individual, donations from business sponsors and ticket sales.
