Music Curated in Creative Collaboration with The Bluebird Cafe

Nashville Ballet lifts the curtain on the creative process with its popular Emergence series, inviting the public into its studio to experience art only 12 hours in the making. See what happens when up-and-coming choreographers embrace their creative instincts in a rapid-fire rehearsal process. This season’s edition will feature a musical collaboration with The Bluebird Cafe, recreating the intimacy of the world-renowned listening room at Nashville Ballet. The Bluebird Cafe celebrates its 35th anniversary this year, and Emergence serves as the finale event of its yearlong celebration.
