Aram Demirjian talks to Todd Steed about the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra's Fourth of July program and shares some great news about a future project.

The Knoxville Choral Society will have a new director for the 2018/2019 season. Dr. John Orr, who has served as conductor of the Knoxville Chamber Chorale and Assistant Director of the Choral Society for the past five years has recently been appointed Artistic Director, following Dr. Eric Thorson, who served as director for over twenty years.

Dr. Orr has extensive experience in leading community and church choirs, in addition to writing curriculum for children's choirs. He wrote his doctoral thesis about the effects of aging on the voice, particularly for amateur singers.

Pamela Ruiter-Feenstra is an organist who's passionate not only about making music, but also about advocating for marginalized populations while doing her part to ensure that music remains a vehicle for learning for children and adults. She does this through her own compositions, including her Muse project. Dr. Ruiter-Feenstra frequently creates programs that combine her compositions with scripture readings and hymn singing. These programs are holistic and non-denominational, and usually address a singular theme such as love, or gratitude.

On Thursday and Friday, May 10th and 11th, Marble City Opera will present Dominick Argento's one-act opera, Postcard from Morocco. Performances will be given at the Jackson Terminal, located in the "Old City" of downtown Knoxville. The opera takes place at a train station. There are seven characters in the opera, each attached to a specific item and each on his/her way to some unknown destination.
