Hear the orchestra dance in this night of catchy rhythms and toe-tapping melodies. We open with the evocative, jazzy, and nostalgic “Dances in the Canebrakes” by Florence Price, the first African-American woman composer to have her work performed by major orchestras. We will also play Rachmaninoff’s fascinating “Symphonic Dances,” which was originally intended to be a ballet score, but eventually became a meditation on ecclesiastical chant motifs.
