From Fredericksburg-Este Association
The Fredericksburg-Este Association is presenting the William Prescott Italian Composers Series again this year. The Concerto: La Vita E’ Un Viaggio will be performed by the Mid-Atlantic Wind Symphony, conducted by Aaron Noe. The show will be at St. George’s Episcopal Church Friday at 6:30.
Like last year’s first Italian Composers Series Concert, this presentation will showcase a variety of classical and modern Italian musical selections, along with well-known American favorites. Such a program furthers one of Fredericksburg-Este Association’s goals: promoting cultural and artistic exchanges and understanding between the two sister nations.
The event is FREE and open to the public; Donations are accepted.
