Mythical Melodies

  • Atlas Performing Arts Center (map)

Part of the Great Masters, Young Stars Series

Capital City Symphony continues its tradition of presenting outstanding young classical solo artists through the Great Masters, Young Stars Series.  We are thrilled to present Beatrice Chen, 2018 winner of the Johansen International Competition on viola, performing Béla Bartók’s renowned Viola Concerto.  This powerful program also includes works inspired by Greek mythology, including the premiere of Scott Pender’s evocative Oedipus the King, commissioned by Capital City Symphony, and Alan Hovhaness’s Meditation on Orpheus

Pre-concert discussion: Join composer Scott Pender for a pre-concert discussion of his brand new work before the world premiere takes place and gain exclusive insight into his piece! 

4:15pm-4:30pm in the Kiplinger Lounge, located outside the entrance to the Lang Theatre
