Southwest Michigan Symphony Orchestra
Matthew Aubin, conductor
Daniel Hsu, 2016 Gilmore Young Artist, piano

Meet some of music’s boundary pushers and barrier breakers with a featured side-by-side performance with the next generation of musicians, the Lake Michigan Youth Orchestra. Relish a gem from female composer Fernande Decruck. The sounds of gospel, blues, and jazz meet the orchestral stage with Duke Ellington’s Black, Brown, and Beige, his musical illustration of African American history. Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue concludes the SMSO’s Mainstage season with the raucous and joyous energy of city life.

Daniel Hsu, 2016 Gilmore Young Artist, returns to Michigan to perform Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue with the Southwest Michigan Symphony Orchestra. Mr. Hsu earned a bronze medal at the 15th Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, along with awards for Best Performance of a New Work, and the Best Performance of Chamber Music.

6:30 PM – Free Pre-Concert Conversation with Maestro Aubin
