With a new face leading the AU Symphony Orchestra this year, this program brings together music from different countries, styles, and times. The first half of this concert includes music from the two Americas. It opens with the intoxicating rhythms and sounds of Latin America in Arturo Márquez's Danzón no. 2. It is followed by the touching and virtuosic violin concerto of the Pennsylvania born Samuel Barber. Robert Schumann’s third Symphony, which is nicknamed after the Rhine river in Germany, will conclude the concert. It is a stirring piece divided between secular and religious colors.
