August 29, 2020 – Thanksgiving Point Amphitheater – Conductor’s Notes

This evening’s concert takes place amid a global pandemic at a time when live concert events have been absent from our lives for months. Concert halls across the world have been silent since last March. We have learned by sad experience that making music like what you will hear this evening is a rare and precious privilege. It would not have been possible without an extraordinary effort from donors, Thanksgiving Point, American Heritage School and these incredible youth who spent the first week of school in daily rehearsals to reclaim this symphony as their own. Please consider supporting our students by making a tax-deductible donation of support.
