Celebrate All-American Music with the Symphony!
On April 17th (encore matinee April 18), join the Santa Barbara Symphony for Fanfare for the Common Man. This diverse and evocative program, specially created and curated by Maestro Nir Kabaretti, shines a spotlight on the varied voices and influences that merged to create the "American" sound. In addition to Copland's Fanfare for the Common Man, this concert also includes Copland's "American Songs," performed by Award-winning baritone Cedric Berry.
The Santa Barbara Symphony, under the baton of Maestro Nir Kabaretti, will take the audience on a tour of American melodies, highlighting the roots of "All-American" composers who found inspiration in the traditional songs, folk melodies, and unique sounds of the American landscape. From Joan Tower's Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman (an updated response and homage to Copland's landmark composition Fanfare to the Common Man) to George Walker's Lyric for Strings, this concert also features Santa Barbara’s beloved Robin Frost’s Serenade for Strings, Samuel Barber’s Summer Music for Wind Quintet, and Charles Ives’s Unanswered Question.
You'll also be the first to hear the WORLD PREMIERE of a new orchestral version Polarity by composer George Gianopolous, dedicated to the Santa Barbara Symphony.
This concert is recorded onstage from our 2020/21 Grand Venue Sponsor, The Granada Theatre, and streamed LIVE to your living room.
