Program Notes: 

Bernstein’s effervescent Overture to Candide jumpstarts this concert of American classics. Copland’s El Salon Mexico depicts a popular dance hall in Mexico City through the driving rhythms and tuneful melodies influenced by Mexican folk songs.

The UMD Wind Ensemble ends its program with Bernstein’s beloved Symphonic Dances from West Side Story.
