FCS features the music of great American composers. The performance will begin with George W. Chadwick’s festive Symphonic Sketches, I. Jubilee, followed by Symphony no. 4 (Autochthonous) written by William Grant Still, who is regarded as the Dean of African American composers. According to Simmons, “William Grant Still wrote his Fourth Symphony to evoke the sense of nobility present in all Americans, and to celebrate the best in our country’s people.” The concert will conclude with Aaron Copland’s Four Dance Episodes from Rodeo, which Simmons called “a reflection of America’s can-do spirit.”

  • George W. Chadwick – Symphonic Sketches, I. Jubilee
  • William Grant Still – Symphony no. 4 (Autochthonous)
  • Aaron Copland – Rodeo: Four Dance Episodes
