Dvořák – Cello Concerto in B minor
Copland – Symphony No. 3 

Aaron Copland’s Third Symphony has been called "the Great American Symphony," with some of the composer's grandest and most inspiring music — including his Fanfare for the Common Man.

  • When his Third was premiered, Copland said he intended for the work to “reflect the euphoric spirit of the country at the time.” 
  • Of the work, Leonard Bernstein said, “The symphony has become an American monument, like the Washington Monument or the Lincoln Memorial.”
  • Soloist Zuill Bailey, who wowed audiences on Michael Daugherty’s Tales of Hemingway in 2015, returns to perform one of the great pieces of cello repertoire: Dvořák's Cello Concerto.

Our free Classical Conversations take place one hour before all Classical Series evening concerts in the Balcony Lobby. Led by conductors, guest artists and musicians, these informative talks are a great way to learn the story behind the music.

An informal question-and-answer session with the conductor will take place 10 minutes after the close of the concert, at the back of the orchestra level.
