The Richmond Symphony will open their 60th anniversary season this Thursday evening, September 14th at 8 p.m. in the Carpenter Theatre at Dominion Arts Center. Acclaimed violinist Joshua Bell will join the orchestra, along with 13-year old violin prodigy Yesong Sophie Lee. The two will perform the Bach Concerto for Two Violins in d minor (BWV 1043), with Bell presenting the Symphonie espagnole for Violin and Orchestra by Eduoard Lalo. Also on the program is the masterpiece Ein Heldenleben by Richard Strauss and the Theater Set for Orchestra by Ulysses Kay.
