Symphony Pops Fiedler’s Favorites Bill Cunliffe, piano Featuring Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue Sunday, October 17, 2021 at 3pm New subscriptions on sale June 29 Individual tickets on sale Aug 17 The Santa Rosa Pops celebrates the tradition started by the Boston Pops with its exciting and accessible mix of light classics and popular hits made famous by the incomparable Arthur Fiedler! This festive tribute features pianist Bill Cunliffe playing George Gershwin’s iconic “Rhapsody in Blue,” Marvin Hamlisch’s “Music and the Mirror” and a jazz piano feature with Maestro Michael Berkowitz on drums. Also, Santa Rosa’s own Mark Wardlaw will be featured playing a “Tribute to Benny Goodman,” originally written for the Boston Pops. Enjoy this homage to Arthur Fiedler, iconic former conductor of the Boston Pops. Celebrating the 50 years of Fiedler on the Podium, the concert features delectable bites of musical joy: “Seventy-Six Trombones,” “Jalousie,” Leroy Anderson’s” The Typewriter,” “Strike Up the Band,”” Love Is A Many Splendored Thing,” excerpts from Bizet’s “Carmen” and “Mambo” from West Side Story and more. Arthur Fiedler began his career with the Boston Pops in 1915 as a violinist. After filling in as conductor for four years, he officially became the first American-born conductor to lead the orchestra in 1930. on July 4, 1929, Fiedler inaugurated a series of concerts that continues to this day. He made his mark on the Boston Pops by programming the kind of music that was then known as “symphonic jazz,” compiling an enormous collection of marches, overtures, suites, symphonies, rhapsodies, show tunes and novelty songs. In addition, he showcased the work of young American composers and arrangers, and featured young American soloists. This performance generously made possible by Gordon Blumenfeld
