American music icon John Williams will have two compositions featured on this concert. First, saxophonist David Dees and vibraphonist Lisa Rogers team up on "Escapades" from the film "Catch Me If You Can". Then we'll hear tubist Kevin Wass perform the wonderful Tuba Concerto. The night will be capped with David Cho's interpretation of Dvořák's “Symphony No. 9,” most recognizably known as "From the New World," which was voted Lubbock's favorite symphonic composition.
