Music has a unique ability to bring people together from all walks of life. Elgar’s Enigma Variations is a literal testament to this fact. This piece is composed of 14 variations, each of which is a musical caricature of family members and friends, including his dog. Each variation is subtitled with different initials, the first being C.A.E. which are the initials of his wife, Caroline Alice Elgar.
Zuill Bailey will be our featured guest artist for Haydn’s Cello Concerto No. 2. Zuill recently won two Grammy awards for Best Instrumental Solo and Best Contemporary Classical Composition for his performance on “Tales of Hemingway,” alongside the Nashville Symphony with conductor Giancarlo Guerrero.
