KSO goes UnStaged with ‘Flow, pairs yoga with live classical music

September 12, 2018

The Knoxville Symphony Orchestra will present a new musical experience entitled “KSO UnStaged: Flow” wherein participants will take an instructor-led yoga class while the KSO performs live. The event will take place Thursday, Oct. 4, at 6:30 p.m. at The Mill & Mine, located in downtown Knoxville.

KSO UnStaged: Flow will feature three sets of flowing, relaxing music on stage conducted by Music Director Aram Demirjian. Each set will have a series of movements led by instructors from three local yoga studios: Breezeway Yoga Studio, Glowing Body Yoga and Real Hot Yoga.

KSO UnStaged: Flow

Attendees can enjoy kava juice tastings from Kava Koncoctions, a local grassroots business providing kava-based beverages to those looking for an alternative to alcohol that is relaxing. Food and drink will be available from Tako Taco, the new restaurant located adjacent to The Mill & Mine. Inspired by the conviviality of street food, Tako Taco offers many gluten free, vegan and vegetarian options inspired by locales near and far.’

“Flow in many ways is the most interactive UnStaged event yet because it invites our attendees to engage in the practice of yoga as the music is playing,” Demirjian said. “Both yoga and classical music have been demonstrated to be good for one’s stress level, blood flow and overall health, so it seemed natural to put the two together.”

Tickets are $30 in advance and $35 at the door and available to patrons age 21 and older. Tickets may be purchased by calling 865-291-3310 or by visiting
