Rain was no deterrent for symphony fans at Theater in the Park

Rain didn’t stop patrons of the Knoxville Symphony Chamber Orchestra from enjoying the sounds during a concert at the Theater in Greenbelt Park on Thursday, Sept. 11.

The orchestra performed pop and light classical favorites throughout the evening, including the overture to Glinka’s Ruslan and Ludmilla, a movement from Mozart’s Symphony No. 41, “Jupiter” (Allegro vivace), Ungar’s Ashokan Farewell and selections from Rodgers’ Sound of Music.

The Knoxville Symphony Orchestra consists of more than 80 professional musicians under the leadership of Music Director Lucas Richman. The orchestra gives more than 250 performances a year to a total audience of more than 160,000 people throughout the region.
