    SAN ANTONIO SYMPHONY: RHAPSODY IN BLUE

    The “Las Américas” festival celebrates the rich variety of music springing from melded cultures of North and South America. Music Director Sebastian Lang-Lessing kicks the festival off with an evening of concert works from popular music and jazz legends George Gershwin and Duke Ellington, with the cross-cultural influence of Gershwin’s Latin-themed Cuban Overture, plus The Essential Ellington: Music of Ellington and Strayhorn. The program includes Gershwin’s iconic Rhapsody in Blue.
