Composed more than a century and a half ago in 1847, Louise Farrenc’s romantic Third Symphony presented her musical voice at a time when women were more seen than heard. Jessie Montgomery’s Banner comments on the Star Spangled Banner with an inspiration from traditional symphonic works, African-American spirituals, and the anthems of the U.S., Mexico, and Puerto Rico. SF Opera Adler Fellows perform Bernstein’s Songfest, a musical journey from America’s bicentennial year exploring America’s past through the words of 13 poets.
