Beach: "Gaelic" Symphony

Pianist Jeffrey Biegel takes you on a musical journey celebrating the Gershwin Centennial and unveiling the regional premiere of Peter Boyer's "Red, White, and Blue" for piano and orchestra. The piece is part of a national campaign established by Biegel to premiere the work in all 50 states, as a way for our country to " join hands through music, despite all the divisions and differences." Biegel said of his vision..."why not celebrate being an American - celebrating our diversity through unity and celebrating "Rhapsody in Blue" with a new "Rhapsody." The FSO is proud to present the Virginia Premiere.

With his masterful interpretations, Biegel pays homage to the genius of George Gershwin, showcasing iconic compositions that have defined American music. The FSO is honored to present the Virginia premiere of Boyer's new work commissioned by pianist Jeffrey Biegel and inspired by Gershwin's renowned "Rhapsody in Blue."

This concert of musical discovery also features the brilliance of Amy Beach's "Gaelic" Symphony, premiered by the Boston Symphony in 1896, and was the first symphony published by an American woman composer. Join us for an unforgettable season finale honoring the past and celebrating the future of American classical music.

Join us before the concert for a discussion with music director and conductor, Christopher Zimmerman and pianist, Jeffrey Biegel.
