“Only in America” will you find the great composers highlighted in this concert. Ron Nelson’s “Savannah River Holiday” begins the evening with its two contrasting moods alternating between boisterous energy and quiet contemplation that represent the power and serenity of the Savannah River.

The orchestra will also enchant the audience with Samuel Barber’s mysterious and beautiful Symphony No. 1, Op. 9. “This symphony is a true masterpiece that I know our audience will enjoy for its beautiful textures and the most stunning lyrical melodies,” said Maestro Chelsea Tipton.

John Corigliano’s “Promenade Overture” continues to show the unique and unmistakable talent of composers of our great nation.

Guest violinist Ryu Goto will perform Max Bruch’s Violin Concerto in g minor. Goto has established himself as a significant voice in classical music since beginning his career at the age of seven. He has appeared as a soloist with many of the world’s leading orchestras and conductors. Tipton said Goto is an artist that he has always wanted to work with and share with our community.
