SOTM is a member of the commission consortium for a new composition by Lucas Richman, former music director of the Knoxville Symphony. His “Concerto for Violin: Paths to Dignity,” is raising awareness of the problem of homelessness in America and Appalachia. Upon popular demand, world renowned violinist Christina Bouey will return to our stage. The concert will open with a performance of Bernstein’s Candide Overture, and close with Brahms’ spectacular Symphony No. 1.
