“Becoming a U.S. citizen at the HSO’s 2017 opening weekend will forever be one of the most emotional moments of my life.  Join us as we again welcome new citizens and celebrate America with Copland’s awe-inspiring Lincoln Portrait, featuring the powerful words of President Lincoln.  Our all American celebration includes music from Bernstein’s passionate West Side Story, and his only original movie score, On the Waterfront, one of the greatest film scores of all time.  Emmy and Grammy-winning composer Laura Karpman’s All American completes our stirring celebration of America – our country.” – Carolyn Kuan, Music Director
