Event Details

Classical Series

2018 - 2019

Concert runtime = 2 hours

Conductor Emeritus Jeffrey Kahane returns for "American Dreams," which begins with An American in Paris, Gershwin's popular, jazzy tone poem. In Elena Urioste’s embrace, Barber’s Concerto for Violin and Orchestra unfolds with deep sweetness and serenity before building to a breathless climax of fiendish virtuosity.

*Please note: Saturday and Monday performances begin at 7:30 PM
