Instrumental pieces will also be performed, with Ian Braley playing Ferdinand David’s “Concertino for Trombone and Orchestra’,” Manny Colburn performing Arthur Frackenpohl’s “Concertino for Tuba and String Orchestra” and Jason Simon presenting the third movement from Sergei Rachmaninoff’s “Piano Concerto No. 2.”
