Concerts & Events

The 2022–23 line-up is a smorgasbord of musical styles. By broadening the usual orchestral palette, these programs offer a greater range of expression, more opportunities for storytelling, and a heightened sense of discovery. A telling irony is that much of the aesthetic diversity comes from a single country: America. Several works examine the idea of Americanness through the contrasting perspectives of their composers.
