Christopher Wilkins conducts Beethoven’s towering Ninth Symphony with its famous finale, the “Ode to Joy.” Cleveland Institute of Music-trained composer and pianist Jerod-Tate leads his own work, Clans, drawing on the culture of his Chickasaw heritage. University of Akron’s Dr. LaDonna Blue Eye, citizen of the Choctaw Nation, narrates the story.
Saint-Saëns’ Organ Symphony stars the king of instruments, and it packs a powerful punch. The work is part spiritual journey, part sonic theater. Perkinson’s Worship, an orchestral fantasy on the familiar hymn tune, Old 100th, moves between jazz, gospel, and classical styles. Brilliant, sumptuous, and transcendent, Respighi’s Church Windows takes its title from celebrated Italian stained-glass artwork.
