Symphony and History

Jul 18, 2014

We meet Luke Frazier, Fairfax Symphony Orchestra's New Principal Pops Conductor, who premiers 2 new programs July 25th and 26th at the Shenandoah Valley Music Festival in Orkney Springs. One  explores the Civil War through period music, journal entries, speeches, and historical accounts.

The second, I’ll Be Seeing You traces a love-story through World War II and is based on real letters exchanged between conductor Luke Frazier’s grandparents.

WMRA's Martha Woodroof chats with Luke Frazier about his music and the goings-on at the music festival.
