ELGAR Froissart, Concert Overture
GERSHWIN Concerto in F
VAUGHAN WILLIAMS Symphony No. 2, A London Symphony

Gershwin’s jazz-tinged Concerto positively brims with youthful energy and high spirits, and there’s no one better to bring it to life than virtuoso jazz pianist Aaron Diehl. Composed before the outbreak of World War I, Vaughan Williams’ brilliant love letter to London offers up a slice of big-city life, from bustling streets to Big Ben’s chimes. 

This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area. Free tickets are available (4 per person over age 16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30 AM-1:00 PM. If tickets remain at 1:00 PM, the box office will re-open one hour before show time to distribute the remaining tickets. As always, open seating on the hill. The shows goes on rain or shine.
