EVENT INFORMATION

Eckart Preu, Conductor

We invite you to join new Music Director Eckart Preu this Veterans Day as Long Beach Symphony pays tribute to all branches of the armed forces with a program of music by American composers, beginning with Copland’s poignant Fanfare for the Common Man. Considered to be the most popular of all 20th-century orchestral work, the Symphony will perform Barber’s Adagio for Strings (1936); a work of pathos and catharsis played during the announcement of JFK’s death and in the film, Platoon. We will recognize all branches of the armed forces – and all veterans in attendance – with Bob Lowden’s medley Salute to the Armed Forces. Our integrated American society will be celebrated with William Grant Still’s jazz-inspired Symphony #2 Song of a New Race (1937).

Following intermission, audiences will hear living composer, Anna Clyne’s work for 15-piece string ensemble, Within her Arms (2009), a somber, deeply felt meditation on loss, composed in memory of Clyne’s mother and Grofe’s majestic Grand Canyon Suite, evoking the sounds of nature in a beautiful homage to the American landscape.
