Our second Masterworks pays tribute to our Appalachian musical roots, as mandolin virtuoso Chris Thile joins us to perform his new concerto “ATTENTION! A narrative song cycle for extroverted mandolinist and orchestra.” Other works on this concert include In the Beginning by North Carolina-based composer Brittany J. Green, Verdi’s Overture to La Forza del Destino (another reference to the WSO’s inaugural season), and Three Dance Episodes from Leonard Bernstein’s On the Town, a tribute to Wheeling native and accomplished conductor Everett Lee, a Black conductor who broke barriers in the 1950s and worked closely with Bernstein throughout his life.
