Journey to America: Colby Symphony Orchestra directed by Jinwook Park

March 7, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

- Free

(An Energy/Exhaustion Humanities Theme Event)
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. Shuttle service will be available from the Eustis parking lot beginning at 7pm and immediately after the performance.
