Fanfare for The Common Man
Brass, winds, percussion, oh my! Aaron Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man, an American standard, and it’s updated response, Joan Tower’s Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman is the perfect way to spotlight our talented symphony brass section. In this All-American program, members of the Symphony will also perform another Copland’s setting of Old American Songs, as well as a brand new work by young composer George Gianopoulos, featuring Award-winning, bass-baritone Cedric Berry! Our strings will come together for Robin Frost’s Serenade for Strings, and George Walker’s Lyric for Strings, and our wind section will perform Samuel Barber’s Summer Music for Wind Quintet. Also included in the program is The Unanswered Question by Charles Ives.
