Knoxville Symphony Orchestra: An American in Paris
Part of the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra's 2018-2019 Moxley Carmichael Masterworks Series.
KSO’s final Masterwork of the season brings the classic story of “An American in Paris” to the concert hall with two engaging performances. A performance of Joaquín Rodrigo’s “Concierto de aranjuez” features Jason Vieaux, Grammy award-winning guitarist. Vieaux’s artistic mastery and passion for education have made him a pioneer in the classical guitar world. The program also includes Michael Schachter’s “Five-Six-Seven-Eight,” a piece dedicated to dance, and Ravel’s Rapsodie espagnole. The final performance of the evening is George Gershwin’s “An American in Paris.”
Thursday and Friday evenings at 7:30 PM at the Tennessee Theatre, 604 S. Gay Street, Knoxville, TN 37902. Tickets and information: 865-291-3310, www.knoxvillesymphony.com
