Masterworks 1

Sunday, January 30, 2022 – 3:00pm
Unionville High School


  • Fanfare for the Common Man – Aaron Copland
  • Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman – Joan Tower
  • Piano Concerto No. 2 – Camille Saint Saens, Xiayin Wang, piano
  • Symphony No. 3 – Ludwig Van Beethoven

We celebrate Kennett Symphony’s return to the stage with two fanfares. Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man was commissioned to build patriotic sentiment during World War II, and honors the common man fighting for his country, while Tower’s Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman, an homage to Copland using the same instruments, is dedicated to adventurous women. Celebrated pianist Xiayin Wang will join us for Camille Saint-Saens’ Piano Concerto No. 2. We finish the program with Beethoven’s monumental Symphony No. 3, in which he embraced the heroic in everyone, making it especially apropos as we move forward from the pandemic.
