Instead of the traditional European “3 Bs”of Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms, we feature three American greats from the modern era: Barber, Bernstein, and Broadway. The program includes both the Commando March and the Overture to the School for Scandal by acclaimed 20th century composer Samuel Barber. Also featured are two pieces by composer/conductor giant Leonard Bernstein: his lighthearted Divertimento as well as Slava!,a razzmatazz for Mstislav Rostropovich. GMU's Mason Cabaret will join the band to sing a variety of Broadway showstoppers.
