Evans HaileConductor and Pianist:
NELSON Savannah River Holiday
COPLAND Lincoln Portrait
BARBER Adagio for Strings
GERSHWIN Rhapsody in Blue
Don't miss this showcase of American compositional brilliance featuring guest conductor and pianist Evans Haile. Savannah River Holiday and Sequoia take their cues from nature. Copland's narrated Lincoln Portrait is every bit as illustrious and electrifying as its inspiration. The touching Adagio for Strings has become America's anthem in times of memorial. No celebration of American music is complete without Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue.
This concert of shorter works will be performed without intermission.
