Instead of the traditional European "3 Bs" of Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms, we feature three American greats from the modern era: Barber, Bernstein, and Broadway. The program includes both the Commando March and the Overture to the School for Scandal by acclaimed 20th century composer Samuel Barber. There are also two pieces by composer/conductor giant Leonard Bernstein: his lighthearted Divertimento as well as Slava!, a razzmatazz for Mstislav Rostropovich. Joining the band to sing a variety of Broadway showstoppers will be the Mason Cabaret of the George Manson University School of Theater.
