An American in Paris

KSO’s final Masterwork of the season brings the classic story of “An American in Paris” to the concert hall with two engaging performances.  A performance of Joaquín Rodrigo’s “Concierto de aranjuez” features Jason Vieaux, Grammy award-winning guitarist. Vieaux’s artistic mastery and passion for education have made him a pioneer in the classical guitar world. The program also includes Michael Schachter’s “Five-Six-Seven-Eight,” a piece dedicated to dance, and Ravel’s Rapsodie espagnole. The final performance of the evening is George Gershwin’s “An American in Paris.”

 All students grades K-12 can attend this concert FREE with purchase of one adult ticket as part of the Penny4Arts program. Up to 3 students per adult ticket; some restrictions apply.
