The KSO will open its 82nd season with a collection of various performers paying homage to our great city. This program celebrating Knoxville opens with Samuel Barber’s “Knoxville: Summer of 1915,” a classical work inspired by the James Agee poem about Knoxville, with spoken word read by Knoxville Poet Laureate R.B. Morris. Joining the Knoxville Symphony will be the University of Tennessee Brass Ensemble for a newly commissioned work by American composer Michael Schachter. The Carson-Newman A Capella Choir will perform Aaron Copland’s Suite from The Tender Land, and the program concludes with Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances, all composers and pieces with ties to Knoxville for this program which pays homage to the city.
