Looking for a Valentine’s Day gift? This is it!
Happy Birthday Lenny! Enjoy Bernstein’s jazzy and contagious rhythms as we celebrate his 100th birthday. In contrast, for the first time in Williamsport, we perform the mystic and profound work by Jennifer Higdon, “Blue Cathedral.” Relish a taste of Cuba as we perform Caribbean Sounds, a new piece written by Danny Guzman and performed by two of our own principals, Mark Lusk, trombone and Dale Orris, trumpet. The program concludes with Dvorak’s most celebrated symphony in which he explores American folk tunes.
We promise that this music will warm your heart and please your loved ones on Valentine’s eve!
