7:30 p.m. Saturday, November 9, 2019
Frances K. Carlisle Performing Arts Center, Notre Dame Academy

The seemingly impossible accomplishments of those with severe disabilities. Composers through the ages have overcome grave physical challenges to pen great works — Allan Pettersson (crippling rheumatoid arthritis), Joaquín Rodrigo (blind since age 3), Ludwig Van Beethoven (deaf). Internationally renowned and Grammy Award winning classical guitarist Jason Vieaux joins the KSO for Rodrigo’s hauntingly beautiful Concierto de Aranjuez.
