The 4th of July is just around the corner. As usual, the Knoxville Symphony will be performing a free concert in World's Fair Park. The concert will feature festive favorites such as the 1812 Overture, Stars and Stripes Forever and a musical salute to members and veterans of our armed forces. The concert will begin at 8:00, but the festivities in the park start at 2:00. More information on the concert can be found here, at the main KSO website. Information on the festival can be found here on the Knoxville City website.
I joined the KSO in 1986 as a core cellist. I became its principal cellist in 2000. My 25 years in the KSO have provided me with a wealth of experiences from which to draw in blogging. I involve myself with many different kinds of music besides classical. If it sounds good, it IS good! You should know that all of the posts up to September 30, 2010, inclusive, were written by our first blogger, Katy. We can't seem to get Blogger to make this distinction, so bear that in mind.
