Presented by the Virginia Arts Festival, the audience is taken on a breathtaking ride through the joyful celebration of the Chichester Psalms, the darkly intricate beauty of the Serenade, featuring Grammy-nominated violinist Robert McDuffie, the transporting Symphonic Dances from West Side Story, and the knife-edge jazz of Prelude, Fugue and Riffs, written for Benny Goodman and performed here by award-winning clarinetist Jon Manasse, with Todd Rosenlieb Dance performing Rosenlieb’s original choreography. Bernstein’s daughter Jamie will host this spectacular celebration and speak of her father’s legacy.

A hidden gem, Tchaikovsky’s Concert Fantasy parallels the melodic inspiration, virtuoso fireworks, and sumptuous orchestration found in the composer’s famous First Piano Concerto. Choral Fantasy, for solo piano, chorus and orchestra, clearly hints at Beethoven’s immortal “Ode to Joy” from his Ninth Symphony. Tickets from $25. kcsymphony.org | 816-471-0400
