Houston Symphony presents Fanfare for the Common Man: Copland + World Premiere
Often called the “Great American Symphony,” Aaron Copland’s monumental Symphony No. 3 takes listeners on an extraordinary journey, culminating in the stirring and euphoric Fanfare for the Common Man. Houston Symphony percussionist Matthew Strauss and Svet Stoyanov will showcase the full spectrum of percussion’s expressive power with the world premiere of Jennifer Higdon’s Duo Duel for Two Percussionists and Orchestra. This celebration of American music, past and present, opens with Christopher Theofanidis’s exuberant Rainbow Body.
The Saturday performance will be available to livestream.
