Colby Symphony Orchestra: Journey to America

March 7, 7:30 PM

Free

The Journey to America alternates between energy and exhaustion, between dramatic and sublime. Beginning in Austria with Beethoven’s electrifying, epochal Fifth Symphony, the program shifts quickly to a pair of very different works by American masters Samuel Barber and Aaron Copland. Barber’s sometimes ethereal, sometimes anguished Adagio for Strings becomes even more powerful when played beside Copland’s dramatic Fanfare for the Common Man. Rounding out the program will be Copland’s Lincoln Portrait, narrated by Cheryl Townsend Gilkes, John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Professor of Sociology and African-American Studies.

The Colby Symphony Orchestra is directed by Jinwook Park.
