Southwest Michigan Symphony Orchestra Presents "Rhapsody in Blue"

Meet some of music’s boundary pushers and barrier breakers with a featured side-by-side performance with the next generation of musicians, the Lake Michigan Youth Orchestra. Relish a gem from female composer Fernande Decruck.

The sounds of gospel, blues and jazz meet the orchestral stage with Duke Ellington’s Black, Brown, and Beige, his musical illustration of African-American history. Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue concludes the SMSO’s Mainstage season with the raucous and joyous energy of city life.

Attend the pre-concert conversation at 6:30 p.m. to listen to SMSO Maestro Matthew Aubin as he explains the history behind the pieces to be performed at the 7:30 p.m. concert and his passion for the music.

Admission: Adult tickets are $38/$23, Students ages 6-17 are $6
