    The rich diversity of music found in the two Americas, North and South, is distilled into this perfect program featuring music by both North and South American master composers.   Guest conductor John Axelrod will lead the orchestra and highlight a world premiere cello concerto by composer Jeffery Mumford’s which will be performed by San Antonio’s own, and YOSA alumna, Christine Lamprea.   The program will open with the Tango genius Astor Piazzolla’s Tangazo subtitled “variations on Buenos Aires,” an evocative ode to the sensual Argentine city. Leonard Bernstein’s Divertimento is a rollicking tribute to his own native city and its own venerable Boston Symphony Orchestra. John Adams’s El Dorado connects the long musical road between North and South with dazzling orchestral virtuosity.

    The appearance of Christine Lamprea is co-sponsored by TMI – The Episcopal School.
