ASU Symphony Orchestra Presents “Trailblazers” with Jonathan Taylor Rush at ASU Gammage

Join the ASU Symphony Orchestra for the final concert of their season, “Trailblazers,” with talented guest conductor Jonathan Taylor Rush. This exciting event, by the ASU School of Music, Dance, and Theatre, is at ASU Gammage and will showcase the works of groundbreaking composers Amy Beach and Florence Price.

Experience the dazzling “Piano Concerto in C-sharp minor” by Amy Beach, performed by ASU faculty member Miki Aoki. Beach’s concerto is known for its brilliant melodies and complex harmonies. It is a standout piece that highlights the composer’s profound musical genius.

The concert will also feature Florence Price’s “Symphony No. 1 in E minor,” conducted by Jonathan Taylor Rush. Price’s symphony blends classical form with elements of African American spirituals and melodies. It is a rich tapestry of sound that has resonated deeply since its debut.

Under the leadership of Jason Caslor and guest conductor Jonathan Taylor Rush, the ASU Symphony Orchestra will navigate these significant compositions, delivering a powerful performance that honors the legacy of these trailblazing composers. Both pieces showcase the extraordinary talents of the musicians and celebrate the contributions of women to classical music.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see the ASU Symphony Orchestra in action at ASU Gammage. “Trailblazers” promises to be an inspiring evening filled with beautiful music and the stories of composers, shaping the musical landscape. Whether you are a lifelong classical music enthusiast or a newcomer, this concert will leave a lasting impression.
