Music Director Steven Reineke said, "I am really excited to work with Matt Doyle and Ali Ewoldt on this brand new program. They have both shown themselves to be talents to watch in the past few years, and I know our fans will see that their stars really are on the rise! With this program, we look back at the history of the orchestra and American music, and as we celebrate our 35th anniversary, it is my great honor to pay tribute to my predecessor Skitch Henderson in celebration of his 100th birthday."
