She makes her OSM debut in Samuel Barber’s operatic rhapsody Knoxville: Summer of 1915, which recounts a family’s evening together in a small Tennessee town. Also on the program are Barber’s deeply moving Adagio for Strings as well as works by Canadian composer Jean Coulthard and Venezuelan composer Inocente Carreño.
