Presentation
DANCE AND SING AND SHOUT!— Ching-a-Ring Chaw (Aaron Copland)

Who can remain seated when they hear the infectious rhythms of Leonard Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story? Who can resist the orchestral jazz of George Gershwin’s world-famous Rhapsody in Blue, particularly when Alain Altinoglu himself is conducting from behind the piano? And who knows of a better way to start the year than with a sparkling New Year’s Concert packed with musical surprises? Not the La Monnaie Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, who kick off 2020 with American brio!
