Barber: Second Essay for Orchestra, Op. 17
Grofé: Grand Canyon Suite (with projection)
Ives: Symphony No. 2
Grofe's picturesque Grand Canyon Suite wowed sold-out audiences during the Symphony's 2012 performance, and the National Park's 100-year anniversary performance will feature Westwater Arts' high-definition images of the Grand Canyon projected above the orchestra in Symphony Hall. Assistant Conductor Matthew Kasper continues this patriotic program with Barber's Second Essay for Orchestra and the unique compositional style of Charles Ives with his Second Symphony.
