What do Thomas Jefferson and Casanova have in common? They served as the inspiration to the main works presented on today’s program. Our principal guest conductor, Johan de Meij, returns to lead The New York Wind Symphony through his cello concerto entitled, Casanova featuring guest soloist Eileen Moon, Associate Principal Cellist of The New York Philharmonic. Then our Honors Youth Chorus will take the stage in a performance of Randall Thompson’s, The Testament of Freedom, the text of which is taken from the writings of Thomas Jefferson. We are proud and honored to name the Hudson Valley based Committee for the Families of War Veterans and Hudson Valley Honor Flight as the beneficiaries of this concert!
