All-American Afternoon featuring Sean Chen on piano
Sunday, Oct. 10, at 3 pm (CDT)
The sounds of America’s rich, musical heritage will be on display for this All-American Afternoon featuring composers Gershwin, Bernstein, Copland, and others. The MSO will open its 61st season featuring Juilliard pianist and 2013 American Pianists Awards winner, Sean Chen, and the world-renowned Gershwin Concerto in F. After the concerto premiered in 1925, Gershwin was described as ‘the Prince who has taken Cinderella [jazz] by the hand and openly proclaimed her a princess to the astonished world, no doubt to the fury of her envious sisters.’ Join the symphony in the Grand Ballroom for lunch before the performance, and meet Meridian’s own Miss Mississippi 2021, Holly Brand! It will be an unparalleled afternoon in the Queen City celebrating its heritage and promising future. Meridian sounds Americana!
