Robin Fountain, conductor

featuring Tracy Silverman, electric violin

Love Song to the Sun is an electric violin concerto written by and featuring Tracy Silverman, utilizing interactive projections to tell a story of survival and surrender. 

Scored for full symphony and featuring the Vanderbilt University Orchestra, Love Song to the Sun tells the dramatic, autobiographical, one-day story of a tiny bug, through Silverman’s six-part musical score, with prepared and live interactive video projections by Todd Winkler.

Albert Schweitzer said, “When man learns to respect even the smallest being of creation, nobody has to teach him to love his fellow man.”

The orchestra, conducted by Robin Fountain, will also perform Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Symphony No. 5.

Love Song to the Sun, which will have its regional premiere at this performance, was co-commissioned by the Blair School of Music, the Anchorage Symphony, the Rogue Valley Symphony and the Brown University Orchestra.

Presented with gratitude to the Blair KeyBoard for its generous support of the Blair School
