Sunday, October 14, 2012 at 4:00 pm
SOPAA is pleased to welcome the Toledo Symphony back to the Vern Riffe Center for the Arts with a very special afternoon of music by American composers.
The program will include music by George Gershwin, Aaron Copland, and others. No stranger to our VRCFA stage, the Toledo Symphony has proven themselves as master musicians and delightful entertainers. Conductor Jeffrey Pollock is known internationally for the musicality of his performances, his innovative concert programming, and for his ability to make connections with audiences.
The featured composition for this performance will be George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. Michael Boyd, professor of piano at The University of Toledo, is thrilled to perform this quintessential piece of American music.
