W&L University Orchestra Presents “A Pilgrim Vision”

The Washington and Lee University Orchestra.

The Washington and Lee University Orchestra presents an evening of traditional music from various countries around the world on March 22, at 8 p.m. in Wilson Concert Hall, Lenfest Center for Performing Arts.

The concert is free and open to the public, and no tickets are required.

The orchestra will perform music by Holst, Husa, Tower and Bernstein alongside a performance of John Alden Carpenter’s “A Pilgrim Vision,” which has not been performed since 1921.

This re-premiere is made possible through collaboration with the College Orchestra Director’s Association and the Library of Congress. Professor Chris Dobbins and Ben Whedon ’18 worked on this forgotten musical score over the summer and you can read the story here.

The performance will be streamed live at https://livestream.com/wlu/a-pilgrim-vision.
