Buckle up! We’re packin’ up and hittin’ the road to take in the sights of a Great American Road Trip! The concert kicks off with Michael Daughtery’s Route 66, which the composer describes as “a high-octane nostalgic musical romp from Illinois to California along America’s first intercontinental highway, as seen through my rear-view mirror.” Next we’ll head to the Grand Tetons and the Snake River in Jennifer Higdon’s All Things Majestic – and finally, we take a trip down the Mississippi, from the headwaters all the way to New Orleans, in Ferde Grofé’s Mississippi Suite. To top it off, the Springfield Youth Symphony is welcomed back for a side-by-side performance with the Springfield Symphony.
