Springfield Symphony Orchestra, An American Celebration

April 6 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm EDT

symphony orch

Celebrate American classics with conductor Peter Boyer and pianist Jeffrey Biegel.

April 6 will be an amazing night of music and patriotic spirit at our An American Celebration concert. Wear your red, white, and blue to show support for our military heroes.

This concert includes two of the most iconic pieces of American music: Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring Suite, and George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. Pianist Jeffrey Biegel, a longtime champion of Gershwin’s Rhapsody, commissioned acclaimed American composer Peter Boyer to compose a new work in celebration of that work’s centennial in February 2024. Boyer’s brand new Rhapsody in Red, White & Blue is being performed by orchestras around the United States, and the composer will conduct his own work for this SSO concert. Completing the program are Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man, and the bravura Fanfare Ritmico by Jennifer Higdon.

Head to the Mahogany Room before the concert for a special veteran-focused event featuring Veteran’s Inc., Springfield Vet Center, and more. Support Veteran’s Inc.’s annual Stand Down event by donating essential items to their supply drive. Bring your donation of shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and soap, soap dishes/travel containers, disposable razors, white men’s undershirts (NEW) all sizes, or socks and enter for a chance to win 2 free tickets to any 2024/25 SSO show!
