Vienna, Austria, often known as the city of music, is a world music capital where more famous composers lived than any other city. They came, stayed and wrote some of the world’s most timeless classical music that continues to be performed today. At this concert, the Hendersonville Symphony will perform works including Lehar’s “Overture to The Merry Widow,” Beethoven’s “Egmont Overture,” Brahms’ “Variations on a Theme of Hayden,” and Strauss’ “The Emperor Waltz” and “Tritsch-Tratsch Polka.” The orchestra will be joined by violinist Zachary DePue for Mozart’s “Violin Concerto No. 5.”
The concert is sponsored in part by Fields Auto Group. The guest artist is sponsored by Knox Law Firm.

He demonstrates command as a soloist, collaborator, and improvisational artist reaching across a diverse landscape of music.
