Description

Our 28th season opening concert is all about stories told in music. The centerpiece of the concert is Samuel Barber’s iconic “Knoxville: Summer of 1915”, based on James Agee’s short essay that eventually became the preamble to the author’s Pulitzer Prize-winning “A Death in the Family”. Described by the composer as a lyric rhapsody, it paints an idyllic, nostalgic picture of Agee\’s native Knoxville, Tennessee. The preamble is a simple, dreamlike depiction of an evening in the American South, narrated by a child who seems, at times, to transform into an adult. We are delighted to welcome the supremely expressive soprano Kearstin Piper Brown to share this story. Music by living composers Ahmed Alabaca, Cesar Cancino, Carlos Franzetti and Kyle T. Jones rounds out what is sure to be a lovely late summer evening of STORIES.
