In this week’s Knoxville Mercury, I preview the new work by Ellen Reid and Royce Vavrek, Knoxville: Summer of 2015. On the concert at the Tennessee Theatre on Friday evening, that work follows a performance of the Samuel Barber work, Knoxville: Summer of 1915. Also on the bill is music from Aaron Copland’s The Tender Land. James Fellenbaum conducts the University of Tennessee Symphony Orchestra and UT Chamber Singers. Katy Wolfe will be the vocalist in Knoxville: Summer of 2015. Read the preview online here.
