Kick off the summer series with this program of popular classics and unexpected gems by two quintessential American voices. Aaron Copland defined the sound of Americana with his 1942 ballet Rodeo, while his Danzón Cubano and George Gershwin’s exuberant Cuban Overture look to the vibrant folk music of Latin America. The evening also features two rising stars of the opera world, Alyson Cambridge and Gordon Hawkins, in music from the groundbreaking jazz opera Porgy and Bess, including “Summertime” and other signature Gershwin tunes.
