Ask almost anyone what the best movie of the Star Wars films is, and they’ll probably answer: “The Empire Strikes Back.” John Williams created some of the most fantastic music of the nine films for this specific score. Bring the whole family along on the adventure with Luke, Leia, and Han as they continue their adventures, and witness one of the most famous lines in movie history, “Luke, I am your father!”

(California Festival—Gershwin 2nd Rhapsody)
Dominic Cheli, piano

Gershwin: Second Rhapsody for Piano and Orchestra
Rachmaninoff: Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini

Many of our best-selling programs highlight one specific instrument: the piano. It seems that composers wrote some of their most inspired music for the piano with orchestral accompaniment. Come hear two of the best examples: Rachmaninoff’s
“Rhapsody” was made even more famous after it was used extensively in the film “Somewhere in Time” and Gershwin’s famous Rhapsody in Blue got a sequel: his Second Rhapsody. Don’t miss the chance to hear not one but TWO concertos in one concert.

If controversy is a good thing, several of our cherished classics started out as banned works. As is so often the case, this controversy only added to their allure. Come and hear what all the fuss is about. From the nationalism of Finlandia to
