Springfield Symphony Chorus, Nikki Stoia, Director
Celebrate our incredible 70 year history with two great American works and a rare masterwork by one of our favorites! The exuberant American Festival Overture by Schuman opens the program, after which the SSO Chorus joins the orchestra for Leonard Bernstein’s moving call for peace, Chichester Psalms. The orchestra commemorates the occasion with the performance of the final symphony of one of our favorite composers, Rachmaninoff’s dramatic and beautiful Symphony No. 3.
W. Schuman American Festival Overture
Bernstein Chichester Psalms
Rachmaninoff Symphony No. 3 in A minor
