Charleston Symphony Orchestra, "Ode to America!"

Join the Charleston Symphony Orchestra as we celebrate the best of American classical music! Copland’s pioneering Symphony No. 3 includes the famous Fanfare for the Common Man—a work that epitomizes the sound of America. In addition, Charleston Symphony Timpanist Beth Albert takes center stage to perform Michael Daugherty’s timpani concerto, Raise the Roof. Although often overlooked, the timpani (kettle drum) is a vital instrument that acts as an orchestra’s musical heartbeat, and has the power to influence the cohesion of a piece perhaps more than any other instrument.
