The lively “Hoe Down” from Aaron Copland’s Rodeo will get this show on the road. Maestro Pollack will then lead the Festival String Orchestra in his own composition, Suite for My Sweets, written as a piece celebrating the Festival’s return to live music. Dvořák’s Serenade for Strings in E Major will round out the evening. One of Dvořák’s most popular compositions, the five-movement serenade has been said to have “so much pure goodness in it that even the moments which could cast a melancholy shadow retain a wonderfully cloudless atmosphere.”
