Mr. Stoltzman will perform a program of music by American composers, including Copland's Clarinet Concerto, Bernstein's Sonata for Clarinet, and a small suite of pieces by Gershwin, including Summertime and Bess You Is My Woman. Additionally, the orchestra will perform Gershwin's Lullaby and music by African-American composer William Grant Still.

As part of his time in Central Florida, Mr. Stoltzman will also be doing an outreach performance for students selected to participate in Orange County Public Schools' All-County Orchestra program. "We are excited to continue our educational partnership with OCPS. The Society feels strongly that students need to be exposed to truly outstanding players and is continuing this initiative by bringing Richard Stoltzman into the schools," said Bach Festival Society Executive Director, Elizabeth (Betsy) Gwinn.
