An American Journey is an all-American program featuring works by four iconic American composers. The concert opens with George Gershwin’s popular Porgy and Bess Suite.
Infused by classical, rock, and pop culture, three-time Grammy Award winner Michael Daugherty's Hell’s Angels is a tour de force that will have the audience engaged from start to finish. Hell’s Angels is a concerto for four bassoonists dressed in motorcycle regalia who are ready to rumble. We promise that you’ve never heard a concerto even remotely like this one! Daugherty, is one of the most frequently commissioned, programmed, and recorded current American composers. Daugherty likens the bassoon to the drag-pipe on a Harley-Davidson - an obvious turn-on, and a useful inspiration.
The program also features John Williams’ powerful and soaring score to the film, Lincoln and Howard Hanson’s magnificent Symphony No. 2 “Romantic.”
