Led by Assistant Conductor Kensho Watanabe, The Philadelphia Orchestra celebrates its legacy of imagination, innovation, and excellence with an evening of music by American composers and Beethoven. Beginning with Michael Daugherty’s Flamingo, a wild and fun concerto for two tambourines, the Orchestra relaxes with George Gershwin’s charming Lullaby for strings and Morton Gould’s American Symphonette No. 2. Concluding the program is Beethoven’s masterful Symphony No. 1.
