2:00 pm Verizon Hall
Join us on a whirlwind tour of the music of South America and, courtesy of New Yorker George Gershwin, the Caribbean! His 1932 Cuban Overture is awash in rhumba rhythms. Principal Harp Elizabeth Hainen shines in Ginastera's Harp Concerto, given its world premiere by The Philadelphia Orchestra in 1965. Fellow Argentinian Astor Piazzolla's Tangazo mines the tango's rich emotional depths as only he could. We finish in Peru with the young Peruvian composer Jimmy López's Perú negro, which celebrates Afro-Peruvian traditions. We welcome López's compatriot Miguel Harth-Bedoya back to our podium.

Immediately following the performance, join musicians from The Philadelphia Orchestra for a Chamber Postlude. Free for all ticket holders in Verizon Hall.   For program details, click here.
