On this concert:
- Ravel’s mesmerizing Boléro is one of classical music’s most electrifying live concert experiences.

- Principal Tuba Dave Kirk gives the Texas premiere of Wynton Marsalis’s new Tuba Concerto, an exhilarating fusion of classical and jazz.
- The hustle and flair of 1920s Paris comes alive in Gershwin’s jaunty, jazz-infused An American in Paris.
