Moxley Carmichael KSO Masterworks Series: Portrait of a Queen

March 25, 2021 @ 7:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. |

The Knoxville Symphony Orchestra will perform “Portrait of a Queen” as part of its Masterworks Series. A program of under-celebrated stories begins with a pair of symphonies by contemporaries Joseph Bologne (more commonly known by his title, “Le Chevalier de Saint-Georges”) and Joseph Haydn. Florence Price’s lyrical Andante moderato precedes Carlos Simon’s Portrait of a Queen, which “traces the evolution of black people in America through the lens of the black woman … who represents strength, courage, and selflessness” (Carlos Simon). The KSO welcomes Rev. Reneé Kesler, president of the Beck Cultural Exchange Center, as a guest speaker for the program.
