Roger Kalia, conducting
Our last conductor finalist of the season, Roger Kalia and the Symphony will be joined by one of Virginia Opera’s Emerging Artists, soprano Katherine Polit. The audience will be wowed by this performance of Samuel Barber’s Knoxsville: Summer of 1915 – a simple, dreamlike depiction of a summer evening in the American South. The Symphony will conclude the 2016-2017 season with Dvorak’s pastoral Eighth Symphony, where the music is inspired by tranquil landscapes, depicting a summer’s day full of passion, dance and humor.
