Experience the exuberance, joy, and brilliance of great American music. Hear a musical portrait of a bustling city in Gershwin’s An American in Paris. Then, listen for syncopated Latin rhythms telling the story of the impossible romance of two star-crossed lovers in Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story. The program closes with roots musician Rhiannon Giddens exploring musical narratives of the American south, drawing inspiration from Odetta to Nina Simone, with the San Francisco Symphony.
