For its November concerts, the orchestra plays works written by four American composers—two inspired by Thomas Jefferson and two written in the shadow of World War II. The UVA University Singers join the orchestra for Randall Thompson’s The Testament of Freedom and J. Todd Frazier’s University of Virginia Suite, both of which use Jefferson’s own writings to illuminate his life and legacy. Samuel Barber’s impassioned Second Essay for Orchestra and Leonard Bernstein’s jazz-inflected “Three Dance Episodes” from On the Town, meanwhile, are attempts to create unique and uniquely American musical languages.
