Gershwin Cuban Overture
Akiho Percussion Concerto (2019)
Copland Symphony No. 3
Sean Ritenauer, percussion

This program of music by American composers begins with Gershwin’s Cuban Overture – a “Rhumba for orchestra” inspired by the music of Havana – and continues with Andy Akiho’s Percussion Concerto, starring HSO Principal Percussion Sean Ritenauer. Copland’s inspiring Third, his final and most famous symphony, blends postwar optimism with distinctively American themes.
