All seven concerts will be free…. CSO artistic director Louis Langrée … is conducting programs on Sept. 26, Oct. 4, Nov. 21 and Dec. 5. The CSO’s digital season opener at 8 p.m. Sept. 26 will feature soprano Angel Blue and the Catalyst Quartet performing Jessie Montgomery’s Banner, Barber’s Knoxville: Summer of 1915 and Copland’s Suite from Appalachian Spring…. The Pops will also be producing an Oct. 31 Halloween show…. Pops Principal Guest Conductor and actor Damon Gupton will narrate The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.” Says Pops Conductor John Morris Russell, “We’re really excited about two world premiere orchestrations—The Legend of Sleepy Hollow we commissioned from James Stephenson III and a new reduced scoring of Rhapsody In Blue from Tim Berens.”
