Portraits of America: A Tallahassee Bicentennial Celebration

January 21 @ 3:00 pm - January 22 @ 5:00 pm

$36 – $60

The Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra journeys through America, past and present. Our concert opens with a new work by Jennifer Higdon (commissioned, in part, by TSO) that captures the spirit of the Western Carolina mountains. Aaron Copland’s iconic Lincoln Portrait tells American history through narration and visuals. Composed in 1930, William Grant Still’s “Afro-American” symphony was the first written by an African-American to be performed by a leading American orchestra. Set to music from Duke Ellington’s Black, Brown and Beige, a brand-new photo-choreography work will celebrate Tallahassee’s past and present to kick off our City of Tallahassee and Leon County’s 200th anniversary!
