Maestro Lucas Richman is in his final season as music director of the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra. He will conduct performances of Stabat Mater on February 19 and 20. His final concerts will be on May 14 and 15.
Since 2010, Maestro Richman has been also serving as music director of the Bangor Symphony Orchestra. He commuted to Bangor until last summer when he and his family moved to Maine. He commuted to Knoxville for select concerts in the 2014-15 season.
The people in Bangor were delighted to welcome the Richmans to town. The Maestro is happy to be there too. He recently posted a link on Facebook to a story that was on NBC Nightly News. The story explained the proper pronunciation of Bangor and featured a marketing video that starred Maestro Richman himself.
