Rhapsody in Blue!

The May Masterworks ends the season with an all-American program featuring Aaron Copland (Symphony No. 3 including Fanfare for the Common Man), Florence Price (Piano Concerto), George Gershwin (Rhapsody in Blue) and Leonard Bernstein's Overture to the musical/operetta, Candide, which the KSO will perform in a full-scale collaborative production in fall 2018 with the Clarence Brown Theatre.

Pianist Michelle Cann will perform not one but TWO piano concerti--by Florence Price and George Gershwin, a spectacular season finale conducted by Maestro Aram Demirjian. Ms. Cann holds degrees from the Cleveland Institute of Music and the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, after which she joined the Curtis staff as one of the new Collaborative Staff Pianists. Michelle is also on the faculty of the Luzerne Music Center as an instructor of piano and continues to perform with orchestras nationally.
