Tennyson said it best. In the Spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of... FREE concerts in the park!!! Come see the KSO under the direction of resident conductor and NEW FATHER James Fellenbaum at the Maryville Greenbelt stage on Thursday the 12th at 7:30, or on Knoxville’s Market Square Friday evening at 7. Or both!
Baritone Kevin Richard Doherty will reprise his arias from Barber and Figaro from the March 6th Chamber Classics concert. Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Mel Brooks will also take the stage in this spring break from the ordinary. Bring a picnic supper, lawn chairs or blankets, and an appreciation for a classy start to your weekend. I’d have to say though, a blanket on Market Square might be a little uncomfortable, but it’s just the thing in Maryville.
Yes, you heard right! Jim and his wife, trumpeter Sarah Chumney Fellenbaum, are the proud parents of Kiri Jane, born Monday, May 9th! At our rehearsal Tuesday, Jim’s hospital wristband was an integral part of his beat, and he was in good shape for the shape he was in.
Please remember that the Thursday night Masterworks concert next week coincides with Umphrey’s McGee at Sundown in the City, so parking will be at a premium and extra time should be allowed. Look for restaurants before show time that are more removed from the throngs of people that are sure to show up, such as Chesapeake’s, the Bistro at the Bijou, or Old City institutions if you don’t mind a little walking.
