Fanfare & Fantasy

November 9, 2024

To fantasize is to imagine the impossible. In Bernstein’s iconic West Side Story, two lovers reach across the uncrossable boundaries of race and culture. Ulysses Kay conjures variations on a theme that does not yet exist. And Alice Mary Smith breaks through 19th century gender norms to become England’s first female symphonist.

  • Leonard Bernstein: Overture to West Side Story (arr. Maurice Peress)
  • Ulysses Kay: Fantasy Variations
  • Alice Mary Smith: Symphony in C Minor

Conducted by Brian Dowdy


Ted Mann Concert Hall
