The Marine Band also revisits Leonard Bernstein’s classic Symphonic Dances from West Side Story in time for the show's newest iteration for film, and collaborates for the first time with world-renowned pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet, performing a brand new transcription of a Concerto based on the tango that was written specifically for him by Aaron Zigman, famed composer for both film and the concert stage. - March 15 at 7:30 pm, The Music Center at Strathmore, Request Free tickets: https://www.strathmore.org/what-s-on/in-the-music-center/the-us-marine-band/ As “The President’s Own” triumphantly returns to live performances, the centerpiece of the 2022 Showcase Concert series is this special gala concert at the beautiful Music Center at Strathmore.
