Welcome to the awesome slate of artists sharing the stage with the Austin Civic Orchestra for A “Rhapsody” of American Music concert on March 9 at 6 pm at The Austin Stone Northwest, located at 9001 N RR 620 (next to Concordia University).
Guest conductor and ACO Music finalist, Richard Frazier developed this all- American music concert inspired by the 100th anniversary of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue.
The ACO will perform Hanson’s flowing three movement Symphony No 2 (The Romantic) followed by The Cowboys Overture, to feature composer John Williams. Rhapsody in Blue will be a highlight of the evening, where Joseph Choi is featured as the piano soloist. The concert ends with the moving finale from Bernstein’s Candide Make our Garden Grow complete with soloists ( Zoe Chunghui Kim, Soprano; Jenny Ohrstrom, Soprano; Donghyuk Chung, Tenor; Trevor Shaw, Tenor; Evan K. Brown, Tenor; and Jake Skipworth, Baritone) and a choir.
Tickets available online or at the door.
