Alexandria, Va. - The music on this program explores such themes as politics, patriotism, religion, and art from a uniquely American perspective and includes the world première of a major new symphony for band by Jacob Bancks, written specifically for “The President’s Own.” Also, Philadelphia Orchestra principal clarinet Ricardo Morales will perform Jonathan Leshnoff’s stunning new Clarinet Concerto, originally written for Morales. Rounding out the program are works by John Philip Sousa and Samuel Barber that give a nod to our nation’s original capital city. The concert will take place at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 19, at Northern Virginia Community College's Schlesinger Center in Alexandria, Va. Admission and parking are free. A string quartet will perform pre-concert music in the lobby at 1:15 p.m.
