November 20, 2021 – Asheville, NC:
“The concert was a beautiful program, and an even more beautiful with the return to the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium.”
This past Saturday, the Asheville Symphony Orchestra made a more than welcome return to the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium, its first appearance the venue since before COVID-19 shutdowns took place in March of 2020. This triumphant return to their “home base” featured a program (led by Music Director Darko Butorac) containing one of the most symbolic journeys of victory, Ludwig van Beethoven‘s Symphony No. 5 in C Minor, op. 67. This performance also featured one of the first public appearances of the orchestra’s new executive director, Daniel M. Crupi.
