THE AUSTIN SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA PRESENTS
MAY 2O AT 8:00 PM | THE LONG CENTER
Celebrate America’s beauty with compositions written by American composers, inspired by the sights and sounds of the place we call home. Copland’s The Heiress Suite, created from the Oscar winning score to The Heiress film, opens the evening program. Pianist John Novacek first joins the Symphony for Gould’s Interplay, and after intermission, for Gershwin’s famous Rhapsody in Blue, which combines jazz rhythms with classical elements. Putting nature’s beauty into song is the Grand Canyon Suite by Grofé, the conclusion to just some of the breathtaking landscapes we get to experience.
