Tomorrow & Fri: Violinist William Hagen with KSO

This week's Knoxville Symphony Orchestra concerts are titled "Romance of the Violin" for obvious reasons, the most important being Pablo de Sarasate's work for violin and orchestra, Carmen Fantasy. Replacing the previously announced guest violinist, Brittany Sklar, due to a hand injury, is former child-prodigy, now twenty-year old William Hagen pictured here.

Filling out the program is Antonin Dvorak's Carnival Overture, James Newton Howard's A Village Romance (from M. Night Shyamalan's film, The Village), and finally Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 3 ("Polish"). Lucas Richman conducts.
