YSO Classical 2022-2023: American Portraits
October 2022
Clock Icon 7:30PM
The Capitol Theatre

Henry Fogel, narrator

The orchestra is the star of Hungarian composer Bela Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra, written in New York City following his emigration to the United States during World War II. Written at nearly the same time, and in the same city, was Aaron Copland’s Lincoln Portrait, which set to music some of the most memorable words spoken by the U.S. President, narrated this evening by Henry Fogel. Offering a different perspective on 19th-century America is Ethiopia’s Shadow in America, written in the early 1930s by African-American composer Florence Price to evoke the experience of enslaved Africans. Also featured is Tephra 2, a composition by YSO Principal Bassoonist Ryan M. Hare.

Theatre doors open @ 6:15 pm for ConcerTalk beginning at 6:30 pm

ConcerTalks explore the composers of the works on the concert and their milieu as well as an in-depth look at each composition on the program.


Starting July 1, 2022, a $2 fee will be added to each ticket to support the upkeep of the historic Capitol Theatre. Learn more here.
