GRAMMY Award® winner Smokey Robinson makes his New West Symphony debut as the narrator for A Lincoln Portrait by Aaron Copland. This stunning piece conveys the magnificent American spirit through the words of Abraham Lincoln. The Chairman Dances from John Adams’ opera, “Nixon in China” is a foxtrot that that turns Nixon’s 1972 trip to China into a whimsical cabaret. John Adams is one of today’s most acclaimed artists and is America’s most frequently performed living composer.  
To complete the program is Dvorák's Symphony No. 7, considered one of the finest symphonies ever composed since Beethoven.  Guest conductor Maestro Donato Cabrera is making his conducting debut with the New West Symphony and will lead the orchestra in this inspiring evening of music.
