Guest baton-wielder Dr. Phil Posey conducts the closing concert of the 2010-11 season, enlivening ears with Samuel Barber's cathartic Adagio for Strings before prompting a theater-wide round of air-bowing with Beethoven's rousing and beloved Symphony no. 9.

The LSO's ensemble takes the stage at the state-of-the-art, 725-seat Liberty Performing Arts Theatre, home to local plays, fitness competitions, and tuxedo-clad turtle races.
