Northwest Florida Symphony American Impressions
Hear the sounds of America as captured by American and European composers. Guest artist Jeff Midkiff performs the regional premiere of his acclaimed, folk-inspired Concerto for Mandolin “From the Blue Ridge” - a fascinating reflection of bluegrass-based themes that combine with sophisticated orchestral sounds, a touch of swing and jazz, as well as some foot-stomping, toe-tapping rhythms that are just great fun to hear! Also a delight will be the NFSO performance of Charles Ives’ Central Park in the Dark - a kaleidoscope of sounds heard while on an evening stroll in 1906 New York City - and Antonin Dvorák’s famous New World Symphony.
Charles Ives | Central Park in the Dark
