Never miss a surprise or a concert!

Unveiling the Avant Garde: Bartizal Family Concert

The performance began with the orchestra librarian and bassoonist, Richard Bobo, who took on the role of the king in Michael Daugherty's "Dead Elvis." This piece set the tone for the evening, as it merged classical music with a touch of the unconventional.


 As the event progressed, the audience was treated to a diverse range of avant-garde works of "Facade," a collaborative poem by Edith Sitwell and William Walton. Accomplished Baritone Jonathan Stinson, whose powerful and emotive voice resonated throughout the venue, delivered this striking poem. The words of "Facade" were complemented by the expressive performance of Jessica Sudduth, Sr. Education Manager of our new organization, Ovations+
