GREAT AMERICAN BALLETS

COPLAND: APPALACHIAN SPRING

WITH STATE STREET BALLET​

ELLINGTON: THE RIVER

TCHAIKOVSKY ISN'T THE ONLY COMPOSER WHO WROTE GREAT BALLETS. AMERICANS WROTE THEIR OWN CLASSIC WORKS FOR GREAT CHOREOGRAPHERS TOO. AARON COPLAND CHANGED THE COURSE OF AMERICAN MUSIC WITH HIS THREE BALLETS. ON THIS CONCERT, WE PERFORM HIS FIRST AND GREATEST: APPALACHIAN SPRING. WE WILL BE JOINED, LIVE ONSTAGE, BY THE STATE STREET BALLET FROM SANTA BARBARA. ON THE SECOND HALF OF THE PROGRAM, THE ORCHESTRA MOVES FRONT AND CENTER TO PERFORM A MUSICAL JOURNEY FROM DUKE ELLINGTON'S ONLY TRUE BALLET SCORE, "THE RIVER".

TWO-FIFTHS OF BEETHOVEN

BEETHOVEN: PIANO CONCERTO NO. 5

DOMINIC CHELI, PIANO​

BEETHOVEN: SYMPHONY NO. 5

THE PANDEMIC YEAR FORCED US TO CANCEL OUR BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION FOR BEETHOVEN. WE MAKE UP FOR THAT WITH THIS BIRTHDAY BASH FEATURING TWO OF HIS FAMOUS FIFTHS: THE 5TH PIANO CONCERTO, NICKNAMED "EMPEROR" AND HIS PERVASIVELY FAMOUS SYMPHONY NO. 5.

 

WE HAVEN'T PERFORMED THIS SYMPHONY IN QUITE A FEW YEARS, AND A SPLASHY BIRTHDAY SALUTE SEEMS THE PERFECT TIME TO BRING IT BACK.
