Bernstein / Fancy Free
Goulet / Beatles Fantasy for Violin & Orchestra

Fancy Free, a ballet popularized in the1940s, focuses on the misadventures of three sailors while on shore leave. This work evokes and embellishes on the sights and sounds of New York City during the swing era.
The Symphony will welcome American violinist Lindsay Deutsch (right) to perform the Beatles Fantasy for Violin & Orchestra. This work reimagines the ever-popular hit songs of the Beatles for solo violin and full orchestra.
This program of two popular pieces captures the sound and feel of a particular American moment in a way that still resonates today!
