Masterworks VI: For America

April 10, 2021 @ 7:30 pm CDT

Our tribute to America begins with the lyricism and power of Barber’s First Symphony.  Ricardo Morales joins the QCSO for the world premiere of Jacob Bancks’s Clarinet Concerto. On the second half of the program, a tapestry of American works showcases a diverse range of American music. Travel to the wild west with Copland’s rousing “Buckaroo Holiday” from Rodeo, before being swept away by Judith Shatin’s Piping the Earth. Experience the romance of the Third Movement of Amy Beach’s Second Symphony, before closing with the driving energy of John Adams’s Short Ride in a Fast Machine.

Tickets currently available as part of Masterworks Subscriptions or as an add on to QCSO at the Movies Subscriptions only. Single tickets will be available for purchase beginning May 15, 2020, at 9:00 a.m.
