Sibelius: Finlandia
Bartok: Miraculous Mandarin Suite
Shostakovich: Symphony No. 5

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
the risqué plot of Miraculous Mandarin and the forced revelry of Shostakovich, this program has something for everyone.

Time for Three
Copland: Symphony No. 3

Our three-year festival of American Icons ends with new and old. Time for Three wow-ed our audience to kick off this festival, and now they return to close with music from their grammy winning recording. Copland is the father of the American sound, and his Third Symphony is increasingly recognized as his most outstanding achievement. Help us wrap up the American Icons Festival with this fabulous final entry.
