Health Order C19-35

Recently Sonoma County issued Health Order C19-35—requiring postponing or canceling large gatherings of more than 50 people indoors where social distancing is not feasible from January 12 through February 11, 2022. The County has announced this ban will be lifted on February 10, 2022 at 11:59 PM. American Rhapsody will be performed as planned. Please note: this concert will not be filmed.


About the Concert

Critically acclaimed pianist Michelle Cann deftly demonstrates the infectious drive and exuberance of George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue and the heart and vitality of Florence Beatrice Price’s Concerto in D minor in One Movement. William Grant Still’s Darker America reflects the twin themes of sorrow and hope in the African American experience. Aaron Copland’s iconic ballet Appalachian Spring unites the simple beauty of Shaker hymns with syncopated dance rhythms and haunting tenderness.

Concert Conversations

Concert Conversations are general seating and free to Classical Series concert ticket holders. Approximately 30 minutes in Weill Hall.
