WASHINGTON PAVILION
Delta David Gier, conductor

EVENT OVERVIEW:

Rachmaninoff               Symphonic Dances

Corigliano                      Symphony No. 1

Widely regarded as his greatest orchestral work, Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances opens the SDSO’s Classical Series. A deeply emotional work, John Corigliano’s Grammy award winning Symphony No. 1 is a memorial to the friends he lost during the AIDS epidemic and inspired by the 1987 NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt, which remains the world’s largest community art project.
