On Saturday 22 June at St Jude’s Church NW11, Fantasia Orchestra will perform ‘An American Celebration’ with pianist Martin James Bartlett.

A celebration of American composers with works including Bernstein’s West Side Story overture, Gershwin’s iconic Rhapsody in Blue marking the 100th anniversary of its first performance and An American in Paris inspired by the sights and sounds of 1920s Paris. Overlooked until quite recently, African-American composer Florence Price’s Adoration, is a simple yet beautiful work of deep devotion and sincerity, and Ives’ Three Places in New England portrays scenes from the American War of Independence and Civil War.

PROGRAMME: West Side Story Overture – Leonard Bernstein
Adoration for Strings (arr. Morton) – Florence Price
Rhapsody in Blue (arr. Farrington) - George Gershwin
Three Places in New England – Charles Ives
Andante for Strings – Ruth Crawford Seeger
An American in Paris (arr. Farrington) - George Gershwin
