Robert Schroyer, winner of the 2014 UMSO Concerto Competition, performs Sejourne's jazz, rock and flamenco-influenced Concerto for Marimba and Strings.

An American in Paris, which Gershwin described as the most modern music he ever composed, creates impressions of a homesick American and the bustling streets of 1920s Paris. Schumann's Symphony No. 3 evokes images of life by the Rhine with its striding melodies.
