Heroes & Villains  - Concerts for Young People
Heroes & Villains

Performances at 10:15 and 11:40 a.m.

History has long been an inspiration for composers' works. Join the ASO as they take you from Ancient Rome and the emperor Titus (Mozart's La Clemenza di Tito) to Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3, "Eroica" (originally dedicated to Napoleon) to Shostakovich's Symphony No. 5 (written in response to Stalin) and finally to one of America's great heroes as depicted in Copland's Lincoln Portrait. Throughout the program we reference the ideas we may have of Modern Heroes and Villains i.e. Superman, Darth Vader, and our Soldiers. Curriculum connections include ties to literacy and social studies.

Approximately 50 minutes.
