Enjoy the fun as Sarasota Orchestra celebrates the 100th anniversary of the premiere of George Gershwin’s iconic Rhapsody in Blue. American pianist Michelle Cann joins as the soloist in this blockbuster, as well as Florence Price’s extraordinary Piano Concerto. The concert’s effervescent opening brings you the cheeky wit of Rossini’s Overture to The Thieving Magpie. Creative Partner Peter Oundjian returns to Sarasota to lead these works, as well as Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony. One of Tchaikovsky’s most personal pieces, the symphony packs an emotional wallop with a triumphant conclusion.
