Michael Francis packs this program with American greats in honor of Gershwins Rhapsody in Blue, the centerpiece of our season. This revolutionary masterpiece combined jazz and classical to change music forever when it debuted 100 years ago in 1924. Launching the concert is Herald, Holler and Hallelujah, a powerful fanfare for brass and percussion by jazz icon Wynton Marsalis. While living in sunny Hollywood, Stravinsky fed off his love of American jazz for his Ebony Concerto, this week featuring TFO Principal Clarinet Natalie Hoe. Rounding out the program is Grammy Award winner Mason Bates high-voltage Alternative Energy and the legendary Leonard Bernsteins Three Dance Episodes from On the Town.
