Gershwin: Rhapsody in Blue
Enjoy a rare opportunity to hear Gershwin’s famous Rhapsody in Blue – a true American classic – along with its sequel, which is every bit as fun and captivating. Barber’s electric First Symphony showcases his intense lyricism and rich use of orchestral color, and Silvestre Revueltas’ film music takes us on a train ride to Baja California. On the podium, we welcome Teddy Abrams, conductor of the Britt Festival in southern Oregon, to the Eugene Symphony for the first time.
