Join the BSO for a celebration of music made in the U.S.A

Copland's Fanfare for the Common Man is a different sort of anthem. Composer Terence Blanchard says "Whenever I hear it, it stops me in my tracks and makes me reflect on the goodness of man. And I know that sounds corny for some, but it really makes me think about how, at the end of the day, most people in this country are good people. Honestly, that could have been our national anthem."

Also on the program, Copland's Appalachian Spring is iconic American music, deeply embedded and embraced in our culture. Our performance will be of the original chamber version, showcasing the talents of our core musicians.

Ever since its spectacular premiere in December, 1893, Dvořák's New World Symphony has remained one of the most beloved works of the symphonic repertoire. Dvořák's tribute to his newly adopted country is powerful yet sentimental, filled with a sweet longing for the promise of a better life.

Doors for this reserved seating event will open at 6:30pm. The concert is expected to last roughly 90 minutes. There will be a price increase the day of show.

The stage will be extended into the orchestra pit for this performance. Please note that lower balcony seats (indicated in orange on the seating chart) are considered to have an "obstructed view" and patrons in these seats may not be able to see the entire stage, including the conductor. Upper balcony seats offer better sight lines for this show.
