In addition to the famous Fanfare for the Common Man, appearing in the fourth movement of Copland’s supremely patriotic Symphony No. 3, and a celebration of Leonard Bernstein’s 100th birthday, Opening Night will feature the Gershwin piano concerto that appears in An American in Paris, played by one of our favorite pianists and long-time collaborators, Norman Krieger.

Maestro Rhodes and the orchestra will Go into the next 75 years of orchestra genius with a signature work by the regional rising star composer, Adam Schoenberg.
