The colorful music of American composer Michael Abels opens our program. Liquify captures the shifting moods of a great river with Abels colorful orchestrations and rhythmic verve. Two great composers offer Dance Music — Copland’s Saturday Night Waltz and Frank’s Coquetos offer elegance and exuberance.
