Milwaukee, Wis.—Festival City Symphony will continue its 2014-2015 “Symphony Sundays” series with a concert titled American Masters on Sun., March 15, 2015, at 3:00 pm at the Pabst Theater, 144 East Wells Street.

“Through time, American composers often felt inferior to European masters,” said FCS Conductor Monte Perkins. “The three works featured in this program prove this is false.”

Aaron Copland’s exuberant “An Outdoor Overture” will begin the concert, followed by nineteenth-century composer George Whitefield Chadwick’s romantic “Symphony No. 2.” A beautiful new work by contemporary composer John Rutter, the “Suite Lyrique for Harp and Strings,” will feature FCS harpist Ann Lobotzke.

[inarticleadAll “Symphony Sundays” performances include descriptive program information from the stage by Conductor Monte Perkins. Education Director Jayne Perkins will present Children’s Program Notes at 2:45 p.m. to help children become familiar with the music they are about to hear. Symphony Sundays concerts are best suited for children in grade 2 and older.

Admission to each concert is $14 for adults and $8 for children, students, and seniors. Individual tickets may be purchased by calling the Pabst Theater Box Office at 414-286-3205 or online at pabsttheater.org. Information about purchasing group tickets may be obtained by calling Festival City Symphony at 414-365-8861.
