One of the creators of the first "American sound," George Gershwin's jazzy Piano Concerto launches with power that builds its potency to a thrilling finale. The soloist for this masterpiece is pianist William Wolfram. Infused with inspiration from jazz and other American music, Boston composer Irving Fine's Toccata Concertante is a perfect complement to Gershwin. Bringing a fresh perspective to these American classics is young conductor and Juilliard-trained violinist Andrew Grams. The "Tamiami Sinfonietta," composed by Gregory Smith, was the result of the Sarasota Orchestra’s Student Composer Project and nearly nine months of careful planning and hard work. This symphonic work is based on melodies composed by students from four Manatee and Sarasota elementary schools.
