What is American classical music? The Knoxville Symphony Orchestra answers this question by presenting a concert with incredibly diverse works, but all by American composers. Indeed, this program is representative of the melting pot that is America.

The Knoxville Symphony Orchestra will present a concert of Latin American music this Sunday afternoon at 2:30pm.  Resident conductor, James Fellanbaum, will lead the orchestra in a performance of music by Arturo Marquez, Aldemaro Romero, Aaron Copland, and Astor Piazzolla. As always, this Chamber Classics concert will be given at the Bijou Theatre in downtown Knoxville.
