Join the Folsom Symphony in a show of spirit for America at the double season finale, “Made in America,” on Friday and Saturday, May 17 and 18, at Three Stage, 10 College Parkway in Folsom.

All the music during the performances will be presented in the traditional year-end Pops concert format and is written by American composers.

The Spring Pops concert blends film, Broadway and light classical in a salute to American ingenuity.

As a special performance, in addition to playing Barber’s “Violin Concerto,” first  movement, guest violinist Dawn Harms will perform the world premiere of “Prayed in America,” written for her and this concert by composer Peter B. Allen. Allen wrote the piece “according to what feels American to me.” The result is a blend of American music reflecting African and European traditions.

The evening’s repertoire also features “Four Dance Episodes” from Aaron Copland’s “Rodeo,” John Williams’ “Schindler’s List” and “E.T.,” selections from “Wicked” and “Chicago” and songs that made America great, highlighted by the “Armed Forces March.”

Another added piece is John Williams’ “Air and Simple Gift,” which was played for President Obama’s 2008 inauguration.

The Folsom High School Chamber Singers will join the orchestra to provide the vocal accompaniment to Williams’ “Hymn to the Fallen” from “Saving Private Ryan.”

“Made in America” will be performed at 7:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday at the Three Stages theater on the Folsom Lake College campus.

To purchase tickets call 916-608-6888, visit the ticket office at Folsom Lake College or go online at threestages.net.
