The Binghamton University Symphony, under direction of Timothy Perry and student conductors Heather Worden and Zachary Nobile Kampler, presented a program Dec. 4 of music by American composers Aaron Copland, Samuel Barber, Morton Gould, Leonard Bernstein and George Gershwin. Spanning a period of just 25 years (1935 to 1955), the pieces showed influences of the American West, African-American jazz and Latin rhythms. The concert showcased a number of instruments from the 78-member orchestra.
The Boston Brass quintet joined the Binghamton Philharmonic Feb. 13 for a Valentine’s Day concert at The Forum. The program was a mixture of classical and popular music, some distinctively American and some high-energy Latin tunes.
