Michael Butterman and the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra return to Riverview Theater on Sat, Nov 13, 7:30 pm

The Shreveport Symphony Orchestra season opens, writes Michael Butterman, with two of the most iconic works by one of America’s most celebrated composers, Samuel Barber. His Adagio for Strings is one of the most famous works in all of classical music, conveying an unsurpassed depth of emotion.

The concert commences at 7:30 pm at Riverview Theater on Sat, Nov 13.

Brilliant soprano Mary Wilson then sings a radiant account of Barber’s Knoxville: Summer of 1915. It’s a work dripping with nostalgia and poignant reminiscence.

After intermission comes Gustav Mahler’s titanic Symphony No. 1. The renowned composition delivers both intimacy and power in what will be a showcase for the world-class musicians of the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra.

Join SSO cellist Paul Christopher for a free pre-concert talk in the hall at 6:30 PM.
