Electric Bass Superstar Returns!

January 21 2023

7:30 PM
Chrysler Hall 215 St. Paul's Blvd, Norfolk, VA Price: $25-$79

Five-time Grammy-winner and Newport News, VA native Victor Wooten returns to the VSO – this time playing an amazing piece he’s written for himself with orchestra. William Dawson wrote only one symphony, which premiered in New York under the baton of Leopold Stokowski in 1937 to great acclaim but was neglected in later years. Described as “emotionally charged and rigorously constructed,” its rediscovery is thrilling audiences around the world.

Thomas Wilkins, conductor
Victor Wooten, electric bass

Peter Boyer: Silver Fanfare
William Dawson: Negro Symphony
Victor Wooten: La Lección Tres, for electric bass and orchestra
