Moxley Carmichael Masterworks Series
Bohemian Rhapsodies: Dvořák, Smetana & More
What does it mean to be “Bohemian?” This energetic concert is inspired by wandering artists new and old. The KSO will welcome the unique PROJECT Trio, a high-energy ensemble consisting of flute, cello and double bass who spend much time leading workshops and connecting with students via social media. Engaging younger audiences, PROJECT Trio has performed and led workshops for over 350,000 students worldwide and will lead an educational workshop while in Knoxville. They have also collaborated with American composer Adam Schoenberg, whose piece, Scatter, will be performed on this program, in addition to other alluring music by Bedrich Smetana. This program also includes an arrangement of Bohemian Rhapsody by the legendary rock band, Queen, and Antonin Dvorak’s Symphony No. 8.
