The Conductor Search Season comes to a close with an electrifying overture to Rossini’s opera L’italiana in Algeri. Following the overture, Conductor finalist Roger Kalia and the Symphony will be joined by one of Virginia Opera’s Emerging Artist, Soprano Katherine Polit, in a 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 search season with Antonin Dvorak’s pastoral Eighth Symphony, where the music is inspired by the tranquil landscapes, depicting a summer’s day, interrupted by a thunderstorm.
