After two “hysterical weeks” in Havana, Gershwin wrote his Cuban Overture to share the musical colors of Cuba he loved with American audiences.

Michael Daugherty’s Grammy award®-winning piece, Tales of Hemingway, based on the writings of Ernest Hemingway, features cellist Zuill Bailey, who won a Grammy for his recording of the piece.

Tan Dun’s Secret of Wind and Birds was inspired by new and old, natural and manmade, ancient and modern. Bird songs depicted by traditional Chinese instruments are played on smartphones of musicians and audience members.


Anchorage Symphony’s “Opening Night” is presented by Anchorage Symphony Orchestra.
