"Made in America"

Copland: Fanfare for the Common Man
Bernstein: Three Dance Episodes from On the Town
Gershwin: Rhapsody in Blue
Aldo López-Gavilán, piano
Dvořák: Symphony No. 9, “From the New World”

A thrilling fanfare of brass and percussion opens the 2017 season, launching you into a kaleidoscope of American music. From Gershwin’s free-wheeling jazzy Rhapsody in Blue and Bernstein’s four WWII sailors dancing their way through New York to Dvorak’s symphony From the New World with its soul-stirring American tunes, the national musical soul shines. Don’t miss electrifying Cuban piano Guest Soloist Aldo López-Gavilán making his Tahoe debut, knocking Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue out of the park!

Tonight’s concert with Aldo Lopez-Gavilan and his performance of Rhapsody in Blue is dedicated to the memory of a father also named George who was a brilliant pianist and band leader during the heyday of the Vaudeville era. 

Tonight’s performance is part of the 21st Artown Festival, held annually July 1 – 31.
