    JMU Symphony Orchestra

    This fall concert features the much beloved Symphony No. 2, op. 27, in E minor by Sergei Rachmaninoff. The Symphony was, and continues to be Rachmaninoff’s most successful symphonic opus. The evening opens with Jean Sibelius’ richly scored tone poem Finlandia, followed by Our Town by Aaron Copland. The music for Our Town is drawn from Copland’s film score of the same title, which in turn, is based on the play by American playwright Thornton Wilder. The play and film are both set in the fictitious town of “Grover’s Corner,” and tell the story of an average small town’s citizens in the early part of the 20th century.

    The James Madison University Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Dr. Robert McCashin, is the premier symphonic ensemble for the JMU School of Music. The Symphony presents a number of concerts on- and off-campus each year, and has performed regularly as the invited college ensemble for the Virginia Music Educators Association. The ensemble presents a series of Youth Concerts for students from Harrisonburg/Rockingham and surrounding counties. The Symphony is the only college orchestra nationwide selected to participate in the Carnegie Hall (NY) “LinkUp” concerts for young students.
