About

Peggy Stuart Coolidge’s "Pioneer Dances" opens this November concert with an energetic dose of Americana. Iconic composer Aaron Copland’s work "Our Town" continues the theme with its wistful melodies adapted from the film score of the same name. The next work, composed by George Gershwin, is "Rhapsody in Blue," one of the most exciting and well-known pieces. Pianist Lindsay Garritson makes her ECSO debut playing this crowd favorite. Orchestrated by Ferde Grofé, this piece expanded both the jazz and classical lexicon through the imaginative use of jazz rhythms, blues scales, and inventive orchestration. Closing out the concert is Ferde Grofé’s own "Grand Canyon Suite," which sonically depicts this American landmark in five movements.
