The Oregon Coast Chamber Orchestra opens the 2018-2019 concert season with a Fall program featuring works by immigrants to America and children of those immigrants. The new citizen artists took full advantage of the opportunities presented by an accepting America to celebrate the human spirit through music and song. Simultaneously America's growing global cultural presence enabled them to reach a world population eager to embrace their talents and devotion.
Selections from orchestral composers Sergei Rachmaninoff, Eric Korngold, Victor Herbert, Persy Grainger and Igor Stravinsky makes up the first half of the program, while popular favorites from Leroy Anderson, Pete Rugolo, Henry Mancini and brothers George and Ira Gershwin fill up the second half. The audience will be invited to sing along with Irving Berlin's "God Bless America" to bring the concert to an end.
