MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - New music director Mei-Ann Chen says her Memphis Symphony Orchestra will have "a journey of discovery" during its 2010-11 season.

Violinist Joshua Bell appears with the orchestra May 12, 2011, to perform Tchaikovsky's "Violin Concerto."

The symphony will perform hits from the 1970s as part of "Disco Days and Boogie Nights" in October.

Music of the piano men features the greatest hits of Elton John and Billy Joel next March.

And next Jan. 8, the orchestra celebrates Elvis Presley's birthday by performing his greatest hits.

The symphony announced the lineup this week.
