A program of many firsts.

1- It's our first BCCO collaboration with the youthful students from the BKCM Suzuki Program. Twelve teens will join the orchestra, and three will be featured as soloists in Chevalier St. Georges' Sinfonie Concertante in G Major.

2 - This will be the first time the BCCO has programmed music by the tonight's featured composers: Chevalier St. Georges, George Butterworth, and William Grant Still.

The legendary composer William Grant Still was a man of firsts. Maestro Still was the first African American composer to have an opera performed by a major US opera house and he was the first African American to conduct a major American orchestra. His piece on tonight's program, the great Symphony #1 (the Afro American), through 1950 was the most widely performed Symphony by any American throughout the world.
