Ask someone to name a famous composer, and the first few names you’ll hear might include Mozart, Bach, Beethoven, or Tchaikovsky. All are great composers. Now ask for the name of a famous composer from North or South America, and you might get a slight pause, even though the Americas have produced huge numbers of world class composers. We will be sampling music from South America to Canada, including Aaron Copland’s Four Dances from “Rodeo”, Howard Shore’s music for “Lord of the Rings”, Ginastera’s exciting “Estancia”, and more.

Program:

Includes:

  • Rodeo, 4 Dances (Copland)
  • Estancia (A. Ginestera )
  • Suite from Lord of the Rings (H. Shore )
  • Little Train of the Capoeira (from Bachianas Brasilieras No. 2) (H. Villa-Lobos)
  • Conga del Fuego (A. Marques)

You will be amazed at the beauty of her music, and be moved to learn about the obstacles she overcame to fulfill her passion of being a composer.

For many years, three composers have been recognized by orchestras around the world for their huge contributions to the development of western classical music. They are often referred to as the three “B”s – Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms. The PSO has decided to add one more “B” to the list for this concert, the American composer Samuel Barber. We’ll present his gorgeous “Knoxville, Summer of 1915”, for soprano soloist with orchestra. Selections from Bach’s “Orchestral Suite #3”, Brahms’ “Hungarian Dances”, and Beethoven’s monumental “Symphony #5” will round off this special evening of music.

Program:

Includes:

  • Orchestral Suite No. 3 (J.S. Bach)
  • Symphony No. 5 (L. Beethoven)
  • one of the Hungarian Dances (J. Brahms)
  • Knoxville, Summer of 1915 (S. Barber )
