Two audience favorites from the 20th century share the program with a new work from the 21st! Copland may have grown up in Brooklyn, but his style became the quintessential sound of the American west in cherished works like Billy the Kid. Pianist Michael Sheppard, a local favorite, joins the orchestra to perform Rachmaninoff's marvelous Rhapsody. Finally, we give the local premiere of the winning work from our 6th American Composer Competition.
