In the opening night gala, the Symphony pays tribute to the greatest American-born musician, Leonard Bernstein, in honor of the 100th anniversary of his birth. Tonight we pay homage to Bernstein's contributions as a composer, performer, and teacher.  Featuring his own compositions, works that he loved to perform, and the final symphony he conducted at his beloved Tanglewood, we celebrate his legacy and that of the USM Symphony Orchestra's 99th season.

·         Bernstein - Overture to Candide

·         Gershwin - Rhapsody in Blue

·         Beethoven - Symphony No. 7
