This concert at the Singletary Center for the Arts includes works celebrating the flourishing beauty of color including Anna Clyne’s Color Field and Robert Schumann’s joyous Symphony No. 1 “Spring.” Guest percussion quartet Sandbox Percussion join the orchestra for Viet Cuong’s work Re(new)al a concerto for percussion quartet and orchestra, inspired by renewable energy sources such as wind, hydro and solar.
