The Santa Fe Symphony: American Legacies

Sunday, January 15, 2023

4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Lensic Performing Arts Center, Santa Fe, 87501

Ring in the new year with your Santa Fe Symphony Orchestra and a brilliant program of all American favorites at the Lensic! American Legacies opens with George Gershwin’s all-time favorite, Lullaby for strings. Widely recognized as one of the most technically commanding performers of the horn, Jon Boen takes center stage for the world premiere of his fabulous arrangements of Jan Bach’s Concerto for Horn and Orchestra—originally written by Jan Bach for Boen in 1982. And in finale, you will not want to miss William Grant Still’s most famous and incredible work, Symphony No. 1 in A flat Major “Afro-American.” A traditional symphony, infused with blues progressions and rhythms, Still’s “Afro-American” was the first symphony written by an African American Composer and performed by a major America orchestra.
