2 flutes, oboe, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 3 horns, trumpet, trombone, percussion, piano, strings

Notes

Many of the symphonic pieces that constitute the American classical standards masterfully juxtapose jazz elements with classical conventions. William Grant Still, an African American composer whose works are full of attractive, communicative, and "Gershwinesque" characteristics, demonstrates this intersection through an enriching melodic appeal.

Notes

Copland’s musical sound expresses open, slowly changing harmonies, presumably metaphoric of the vast American landscape. He also utilized music to intersect the American landscape with the Western cowboy lifestyle.

Composed during World War II, Aaron Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man is one of the noblest musical statements ever written. Its famous first three trumpet notes stir our souls. Responding to Copland’s masterpiece, composer Joan Tower added her own twist with Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman, dedicated to women who are “risk-takers and adventurers.” We think you'll love Tower's thrilling work just as well.

With square dances, a cakewalk, waltzes, and a hoe-down, you’ll find yourself tapping your toes along with the dancing cowboys and party guests from two great American ballets: William Grant Still’s Miss Sally’s Party and Aaron Copland’s Rodeo.

Our joyous evening continues with the energetic riffs of John Adams’ Saxophone Concerto. Inspired by the artistry of John Coltrane, Stan Getz, Charlie Parker, Cannonball Adderly, Gil Evans, and other jazz greats, this piece will push soloist Patrick Posey’s virtuosity to the limit!
