Event Info

The Knoxville Symphony Orchestra presents a program filled with boundless energy. The evening opens with works by two prodigal American composers — Leonard Bernstein with his bombastic and fantastical Overture to Candide and Charles Ives with his lyrical and sentimental Second Symphony, which can only be described as the “musical embodiment of apple pie and cider” by KSO Music Director Aram Demirjian. Rising star Alessio Bax makes his KSO debut with Rachmaninoff’s demanding and powerful Third Piano Concerto.

Aram Demirjian, conductor
Alessio Bax, piano

Leonard Bernstein: Overture to Candide
Charles Ives: Symphony No. 2
