"The first half of this wide-ranging program features three of America's greatest composers from the 20th century, while the second half is devoted to two beloved 19th-century German masters.  The concert starts and ends with exuberantly joyful pieces by Diamond and Beethoven.In between, we'll turn to an exquisite idyll by Wagner, and Lake Placid favorite Halley Gilbert returns to sing Barber's achingly poignant remembrance of a childhood Summer in the South." - Peter Rubardt
