The heroine, Leonore, immortalized by Beethoven in his opera Fidelio gives us all a reason to cheer. We pay tribute to Benny Gooman and other legends of the clarinet in Gilliand’s Jazz Concerto for Clarinet – Dreaming of the Masters 1.
The OSYO joins us for our annual Side-by-Side to close this program with the toe-tapping infectious tunes from Gershwin’s An American In Paris. Come and see just how much rhythm we got. This concert will be Fun, Fun, Fun!
