Zhou is a former Symphony of the Hills violinist and soloist who has gone on to become a multi-award-winning international concert artist.
“Nancy Zhou truly is one of the stars of today’s violin world,” said Dr. Eugene Dowdy, Conductor and Artistic Director. “During her early years, Nancy performed solos and played with the Symphony of the Hills, including several times with her father, concertmaster Long Zhou. Nancy returns to Kerrville as a musical homecoming to play one of the great works of the 20th century, the violin concerto of Samuel Barber.”
The music program will also feature William Grant Still’s Poem for orchestra, followed by Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony, which was performed during the Symphony’s first season 20 years ago. Because the Symphony and Cailloux Theater have reinstated full seating and returned to a single concert format, the orchestra will perform the entire piece, rather than just the first movement.
The concert begins at 7:30 p.m., preceded by a Wine Reception at 6:30 p.m.
