Rhapsody in Blue @ 100

Creative Partner Peter Oundjian returns for a concert marking the centenniel of Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue, a touchstone of American music, with pianist Michelle Cann. Praised by Gramophone as "a pianist of sterling artistry," Cann also performs Florence Price's pioneering Piano Concerto in One Movement. The emotional intensity of Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5 promises an unforgettable experience.

A lifetime of musical moments, cinematic in scope, gave every section of the orchestra a leading role at one time or another. Chief among them was the virtuosic solo of concertmaster Daniel Jordan.

It was a thrill ride resulting in an explosion of audience enthusiasm.
