Lexington Symphony Patriots' Day Concert
April 19, 2009
Diplomacy is IN at Lexington Symphony's Patriots' Day Concert for all ages, conducted by Maestro Jonathan McPhee. Catch Madame Mao's fabulous foxtrot from John Adams' "Nixon in China" and toss your freedom fries for Gershwin's beloved "American in Paris". Plus the big sound of solo tuba in Vaughan Williams' Tuba Concerto featuring the Symphony's Jobey Wilson, the dazzling virtuosity of violinist Lydia Ding in Saint-Saens' "Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso", and a bit of Jack Sparrow too, in a rousing closer from "Pirates of the Caribbean" with strings from Lexington High School and Boston's Project STEP - bring the kids and grandkids!
Conductor's Talk with Jonathan McPhee, 2:00pm.
