The Tucson Symphony Orchestra opens its 86th season with George Hanson, conductor and Alain Lefèvre, piano at Tucson Music Hall. Conducting a work by a favorite composer with whom he worked, Leonard Bernstein, and reuniting with his friend, pianist Alain Lefèvre, makes the opener one of the highlights of George Hanson’s final season with the TSO. This classic American program kicks things off in high style with Bernstein’s Three Dance Episodes from the 1944 musical, On the Town, George Gershwin’s Piano Concerto performed by Mr. Lefèvre and concludes with the essential American symphony, Aaron Copland’s Symphony No. 3. Two performances on Friday, Sept. 26, 2014 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Sept. 28, 2014 at 2 p.m.
