Hear Gershwin’s “American in Paris” at Friday’s Orchestra Concert
Don’t miss the last concert of the year by the Stetson Symphony Orchestra. Conductor Anthony Hose begins the program with Rossini’s thrilling overture, The Thieving Magpie, which has proved a favorite with audiences for nearly two centuries. It is followed by Dvořák’s great Symphony No. 7 in D Minor, a composition which showcases the extraordinary dramatic talent of this great late romantic composer. George Gershwin’s American in Paris concludes the program and is a chance for saxophones and the percussion section, including taxi horns, to join the orchestra in one of the greatest compositions of the 20th century.
