About this Performance

Joseph Young leads Carlos Simon’s Portrait of a Queen, which uses the orchestra and dramatic spoken word to trace Black history in America. Davóne Tines performs boldly re-imagined American classics and the evening closes with Copland’s quintessentially American score for Billy the Kid.
