Buckle up! We're packin' and hittin' the road as we take in the sights on our Great American Road Trip! We'll kick things off with Michael Daugherty's Route 66, which this composer describes as "a high-octane nostalgic musical from Illinois to California along America's first intercontinental highway, as seen through my rear view mirror." Next we head to the Grand Tetons and the Snake River in Jennifer Higdon's All Things Majestic, and finally we take a trip down the Mississippi from the headwaters all the way down to New Orleans in Ferde Grofé's Mississippi Suite. To top it off, we are pleased to welcome back the Springfield Youth Symphony for a side-by-side performance with the Springfield Symphony.
