Knoxville Symphony Orchestra (part of SHIFT Festival of American Orchestras)
Every good journey begins and ends at home. This program celebrates the artistic legacy of Knoxville, interweaving music with narrative excerpts by Pulitzer Prize-winning Knoxville native James Agee. The KSO highlights two pieces inspired by Agee texts: Barber's Knoxville: Summer of 1915, which vividly captures a young Agee’s memories of his family and home, and Copland’s Suite from The Tender Land, inspired in part by Let Us Now Praise Famous Men.
