This special (afternoon) concert presented by SMAC will explore the deep and exciting connection between Baroque, Classical and Bluegrass styles. From the classic mandolin concerto by Antonio Vivaldi to modern Bluegrass masterpieces, the music will bridge the gap between traditional and original compositions with innovative and fun musical combos.
Selections include: Ms. Trombetta singing Samuel Barber’s beloved “Knoxville, Summer of 1915” and Schubert’s lovely “The Shepherd on the Rock” accompanied by Maestro David Stewart Wiley at the piano and Jeff Midkiff on the mandolin and clarinet. The crossover musical event is the perfect combination for our lake region, as we celebrate the music of Virginia’s Blue Ridge.
