  • Description:

    One of the most powerful and beautiful songs ever written, “Somewhere” from West Side Story, sets the tone of the Tuesday night concert with messages of love and hope for the future.

    Barber’s Knoxville: Summer of 1915 is a self-described lyric rhapsody that is lush and rich in texture, idyllic, and full of nostalgia. He paints a musical picture that is evocative and dreamy from the perspective of a small boy who, at times, seems to be an adult reminiscing about his childhood.

    Haydn’s Symphony 49 derives from his Sturm und Drang period. The slow movements are dark and somber, but the fast movements show driven and relentless energy.

    The arias from Mozart’s Magic Flute are light-hearted with musical-textual playfulness, bringing full circle the messages of overcoming trials, love, and hope for the future. “Somehow, Someday…there’s a place for us.”
