The ASO’s 2021-2022 season launches with two giants from the symphonic repertoire: Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony and Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. Described as a “compelling, sparkling virtuoso,” Michelle Cann will grace the ASO stage with Gershwin’s Rhapsody. The concert also features Copland’s inspired Fanfare for the Common Man and Umoja by Valerie Coleman, recently commissioned by the Philadelphia Orchestra.
Note: the concert will be presented with no intermission. Masks are required, and all attendees must be vaccinated. For information based on current health guidelines, please visit our website prior to each concert. This is a repertoire change from the originally scheduled Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony.
