The PRCOrchestra’s 25th season begins on October 21 at Maine East High School. The Force of American Music is an exploration of American music and a tribute to Leonard Bernstein on the 100th anniversary of his birth, featuring Overture to Candide, music from On the Waterfront, as well as selections from West Side Story. The foray into American classical music and romance continues with Rodeo by Copland, Bernstein’s most famous mentor and inspiration.
