March 30

Tamara Hardesty, soprano
  • 6:45 PM Pre-concert chat - Sawyer Auditorium
  • 7:30 PM Concert - Whitehead Auditorium

It's an evening of song, as acclaimed soprano and VSU faculty member Tamara Hardesty performs three poetic songs by Strauss. The combined vocal ensembles of VSU's music department join forces with the VSO to present Brahms's heartfelt Song of Destiny. The concert concludes with Brahms's melodious 2nd Symphony. Brahms took 21 years to compose his turbulent 1st Symphony, but only a summer to write his sunny 2nd Symphony.

"(Hardesty) gave pleasure in many gentle, fluent, well-shaped passages..." -- The New Yorker
