About the Concert
Winner of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for her Violin Concerto, Jennifer Higdon has created a Percussion Concerto that elicits standing ovations wherever it is performed! It is "full of joyous music making, a wondrous world of sounds and colors, thrilling in its epic sections and mesmerizing in intimate moments." (News and Observer) Tchaikovsky's Fifth Symphony is one of his most powerful statements in this form, and Copland's historic Fanfare rounds out the program.
