CAMBRIDGE, Mass., June 21 /PRNewswire/ -- On July 7, 2010 Fenway Park will be seeing a different kind of lineup starring Beethoven, Bernstein, Anderson, and Copland. The Boston Landmarks Orchestra, Boston Red Sox, and the City of Boston have finalized event details for the Orchestra's "Home Run" concert.
The Boston Landmarks Orchestra, Charles Ansbacher, conductor, has selected an all-star repertoire that ranges from the classics to a fitting celebration of Jackie Robinson to start its 2010 season with a grand slam. Highlights of this two hour concert with intermission include Aaron Copland's "Fanfare for the Common Man," Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" with the New World Chorale, Holly Krafka, director, Julian Wachner's rendition of "The Jackie Robinson Story," and selections of songs from Leonard Bernstein's "West Side Story".
"This is an historic partnership between the Red Sox and the Boston Landmarks Orchestra where the Orchestra's mission of playing free orchestral music in significant settings could never be more suitable. We want to thank Mayor Menino and all the City agencies for their help in making this possible," said Maestro Charles Ansbacher, the founder and conductor of the Orchestra.
