The Kennett Symphony of Chester County celebrates the season with “Welcome Spring!,” under the direction of conductor candidate David Alexander Rahbee, on March 22. 

The evening features a pre-concert presentation by Rahbee from 7 to 7:30 p.m., followed by the concert at 8 p.m. There will also be a post-concert chat, when audience members can ask questions about the concert and Rahbee’s candidacy for music director and conductor.

The concert features Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6 in F major, Op. 68, “Pastoral” and Copland’s Appalachian Spring. 

Rahbee is currently artist-in-residence at the University of Washington School of Music in Seattle, where he serves as conductor of the University Orchestra and teaches conducting. 

The concert will be held at West Chester University’s Madeleine Wing Adler Theatre in the Swope Music Building, at the intersection of South High Street and East Campus Drive. The entrance is on the parking lot side of the building. The street address is 817 S. High St., West Chester. Parking is free.
