Lexington Symphony’s season opens on Sunday afternoon, September 23 with a program in honor of Lexington’s 300th anniversary. Talented young composer Sky Macklay has written a piece in honor of this anniversary:Dissolving Bands. In addition, the symphony will perform two exciting works of music dedicated to the love of place and of the city; Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Jennifer Higdon‘s City Scape and Ralph Vaughan Williams’ impressionistic “London” symphony.

We've been rehearsing for this concert in Cary this week and are excited that tonight, we will have young composer Sky Macklay with us. Her piece, about 10 minutes long, is "revolutionary" in its approach and we hope Lexington's middle and high school students will come hear it - very cool! Jennifer Higdon's City Scape is big orchestra lively, totally friendly, fun music. And the symphony on the second half - Vaughan Williams' "London" - is one of the most beautiful we've ever played, a true favorite - peaceful, grand, gorgeous.
