Ace Edewards

WUOT is excited to announce our new Afternoon Concert host,  Ace Edewards.

Ace Edewards was born in California but was raised in France. His music studies have brought him to Le Centre d’Études Supèrieures de Musique et Dance in Toulouse, France; the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, in Glasgow, Scotland; and the University of Denver’s Lamont School of Music. In December of 2015, Ace received his doctoral degree in orchestral conducting from the Fred Fox School of Music at the University of Arizona.

Looking for a night of hopeful, energetic, and uplifting music? Knoxville's newest orchestra, the Scruffy City Orchestra, presents a Veterans' Day concert this Friday night at 7:30pm.  This community orchestra formed last Spring and Friday's program, directed by conductors Ace Edewards and Mathew Wilkinson, will be their second.  As would be expected of a Veterans' Day concert, patriotic works will be performed, including an Armed Forces Salute, The Star Spangled Banner, and Aaron Copland's A Lincoln Portrait.
