Steven Amundson, Guest Conductor

Steven Amundson – Handprints

Michael Gilbertson – Concerto for Trumpet and Orchestra

Manny Laureano, trumpet

Johannes Brahms – Symphony No. 1 in C minor, Op. 68

This concert is your opportunity to walk through time with the BSO! We will honor the BSO’s past by bringing former Music Director Steven Amundson to the podium to open the program with one of his own works, Handprints, that was written to honor the BSO’s 50th anniversary. Amundson will then lead the orchestra through the Concerto for Trumpet and Orchestra by Michael Gilbertson, with current Music Director Manny Laureano taking the soloist’s spotlight! After intermission, we’ll reach back into time by performing the First Symphony in C Minor of Johannes Brahms, as Maestro Laureano takes the podium as conductor.

A reception celebrating the BSO’s 60th Anniversary will follow the concert.
