Copland’s Third Symphony, with its rousing Fanfare for the Common Man, adds a refreshing and distinctly American strain to the grand symphonic tradition. This short, no-intermission concert is an affordable, low-stress way to begin your weekend.
French conductor Ludovic Morlot has been Music Director of the Seattle Symphony since 2011. Among the many highlights of his tenure, the orchestra have won three Grammy Awards and gave an exhilarating performance at Carnegie Hall in 2014, as reported in The New York Times: “The performance Mr. Morlot coaxed from his players was rich with shimmering colors and tremulous energy.”
The Seattle Symphony is one of America’s leading symphony orchestras and is internationally acclaimed for its innovative programming and extensive recording history.
