An Americana Salute to Our Veteran's

Performing Arts Center, San Luis Obispo l 8:00 p.m.
Conductor: Andrew Sewell
Soloist: Jubilant Sykes, baritone

Classics in the Cohan 2 is all Americana! Join us in saluting our veterans on Veteran’s Day with great American composers. Metropolitan Opera and Boston Pops baritone Jubilant Sykes sings Copland’s Simple Gifts from Old American Songs, Jerome Kern’s Old Man River, the Spiritual Sometimes, I Feel Like a Motherless Child and more.

The Symphony kicks off with Gershwin’s popular An American in Paris and ends with Copland’s poignant Fanfare for the Common Man and a 100th birthday celebratory playing of Leonard Bernstein’s lively and emotional West Side Story Symphonic Dances. You’ll be singing, snapping your fingers and waving the flag throughout.
