Saginaw Bay Symphony Orchestra presents Music from the Americas Live on January 28

Journey with us as we explore music inspired by the Americas. The concert opens with Copland’s patriotic Fanfare for the Common Man, written in 1942 and inspired by vice president Henry A. Wallace’s “The Price of Free World Victory” speech. The next piece, Danzón No.2, a contemporary work by Mexican Arturo Márquez, combines Latin American rhythms with beautiful melodies. The dynamic Anderson and Roe Piano Duo, known for their “adrenalized performances” and hugely successful YouTube videos, joins the SBSO for a performance of Poulenc’s Double Piano Concerto. The program concludes with Dvořák’s well-known symphony, “From the New World,” a work that was composed while he was the director of the National Conservatory of Music in New York City
