The KSO and Nief-Norf Join Forces To Present An Intoxicating Program All About Rhythm


The Knoxville Symphony Orchestra and members from Nief-Norf will present a concert on Thursday, November 21st and Friday, November 22nd at 7:30pm. "The Art of Rhythm" is the theme and the audience will be treated to the rare opportunity to hear a percussion concerto which will be performed by percussionists Andy Bliss and Mike Truesdale, both members of the Knoxville-based contemporary music ensemble, Nief-Norf. Israeli-born composer, Avner Dorman's Spices, Perfumes, Toxins! is a "feast for the senses", says music director, Aram Demirjian. Also on the program is Beethoven's Symphony No.7 which Demirjian says is entirely based on a single rhythmic motive.

The concert will be presented, as usual, in the magnificent Tennessee Theatre in downtown Knoxville. Tickets and information online at http://knoxvillesymphony.com
