About The Performance
The trailblazing conductor Roderick Cox leads the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra in a reflective and uplifting program, opening with Beethoven’s spirited Coriolan Overture. Scintillating Trinidadian soprano Jeanine De Bique joins for Barber’s plaintive monologue Knoxville: Summer of 1915 and Mozart arias from Zaide and Don Giovanni. Cox continues with Lyric for Strings, by George Walker, the first African-American to win the Pulitzer Prize for Music, and concludes the program with Copland’s famed Appalachian Spring Suite.
