Join the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra at Bass Performance Hall in downtown Fort Worth's Sundance Square for a spectacular concert experience that explores the musical and cultural heritage of America.

These performances will showcase FWSO composer-in-residence Peter Boyer and his most ambitious work to date, Ellis Island: The Dream of America, which uses actors, images from the Ellis Island archives and music to recreate the experience of the American immigrant.

Two works by Samuel Barber, one of the most innovative composers of the 20th century, are also on the program: the Pulitzer Prize-winning Piano Concerto, Op. 38, which will be performed by Leon McCawley, and the achingly beautiful Adagio for Strings, which will be featured Saturday and Sunday only. Music Director Miguel Harth-Bedoya conducts.
The concerts take place March 4, 5 and 6 at Bass Performance Hall and begin at 7:30 p.m. Friday, 8 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $10 - $79 and are available at or 817-665-6000.
