    Favorite music from the Silver Screen!

What's Interesting About This Concert:

  • Guest artist and composer Jeff Midkiff’s Concerto for Mandolin directly reflects his roots in the Blue Ridge Mountains and his fondness for bluegrass music with a touch of swing and jazz in the mix.
  • Looks can be deceiving. The mandolin is classified as a member of the lute family and not as a type of guitar.
  • A friend of composer Adam Schoenberg said his work Bounce sounds like Radiohead meets Aaron Copland. The piece is playful, innocent, fun, light, rhythmic and full of youthful energy, just like the title suggests.
  • Porgy and Bess: A Symphonic Picture includes most of the best-known songs from the Gershwin opera Porgy and Bess including “Summertime,” “I Got Plenty o’ Nuttin,” and “I Loves You, Porgy.”
