Join Maestro Cho for a scintillating night of musical contrasts as the LSO features the works of Ludwig van Beethoven and American composer, George Gershwin.

The concert will be held at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center Theatre at 1501 Mac Davis Lane at 7:30 p.m. 

These performances will feature two of Gershwin's most memorable works for orchestra: An American in Paris and Rhapsody in Blue, joined by Jason Hardink, pianist.

An American in Paris evokes the sights and sounds of the French capital in the 1920's while Rhapsody in Blue infuses jazz overtones to depict the diverse kaleidoscope which is America.

Turning the clock back, the LSO will also perform Beethoven's Symphony No. 5, Op. 67 in C minor, renowned for history's most recognizable 4-note motif. The evening will also include Leonore Overture No. 3 by Beethoven.
