To kick off the new season, conductor Robert Spano leads the Shepherd School Symphony Orchestra in an evening of American masterworks anchored by Jennifer Higdon’s Concerto for Orchestra. Barber’s Symphony in One Movement runs the emotional gamut, from kinetic energy to tender beauty and sweeping, cinematic drama.

Soprano Michelle Bradley joins the orchestra for Barber’s dreamy and nostalgic Knoxville: Summer of 1915, which recounts the sights, sounds, and musings of a peaceful summer evening from a child’s point of view. There will be a short Post-Concert Chat with Shepherd School Dean Matthew Loden and guest artists after the performance.
