Captured on March 28 & 31, 2021

Joan Tower's six "Fanfares for the Uncommon Woman" are a tribute to "women who take risks and are adventurous," with each one dedicated to an inspiring woman in music. The first of these short pieces was inspired by Copland's "Fanfare for the Common Man" and is dedicated to conductor Marin Alsop. In Prokofiev’s first symphony, which he named “Classical Symphony,” he loosely imitates the style of Haydn.

This performance will be available for FREE streaming on our YouTube and Facebook channels starting at 7 p.m. (PDT) on May 13 through June 11. Check back in on May 13 for the links.
