A Touch of France

KSO’s Chamber Classics series brings you an afternoon of musical excellence, honoring the music of Joseph Haydn. Known lovingly by his students as “Papa Haydn”, Haydn’s “Symphony No. 82 in C Major” will be conducted by Aram Demirjian. Violinist Gordon Tsai, nominated Associate Concertmaster for the Knoxville Symphony in 2012, will perform “Violin Concerto Op. 8 No. 9 in G major” by a contemporary of Haydn, Afro-French composer Joseph Boulogne. The program ends with Mozart’s “Symphony No. 31 (“Paris”)”.
