American Visionaries: From Copland to Still 


Evocative landscapes and diverse emotions. From the enchanting melodies of Richard Rodgers’s Carousel Waltz and the soul-stirring rhythms of William Grant Still’s Symphony No. 2, “Song of a New Race,” to the American spirit of Copland’s vibrant Billy the Kid Suite and the poignant nostalgia of Barber’s Knoxville: Summer of 1915, be transported to the heart of a bygone era filled with dreams and memories. 

The 2024-25 season is available on subscription only at this time. Single tickets will go on sale in August.

The Sacramento Philharmonic & Opera 2024-2025 Season and Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor Ari Pelto, for the 2024-2025 season, are generously underwritten by the Nancy and Hank Fisher Family Fund.
