  • Overview
  • Celebrate America's vibrant musical voice! Joplin infuses German opera with ragtime, Ellington entwines complex melodies and rhythms to create a musical tour of Harlem and Gershwin used a rich blues to evoke the impressions of an American in Paris. Barber's rhythmic vitality captures the spirit of a literary farce, while Adams' "foxtrot for orchestra" portrays Chairman Mao dancing with his mistress. Prokofiev's lyrical and virtuosic concerto rounds out the program.
