FloriMezzo in the U.S.A.

Tonight, the FloriMezzo chamber all-stars — among them, concertmaster Sarah Shellman (pictured) and principal cellist Fred Gratta — perform Made in the U.S.A.: Florimezzo Goes to the Heartland, a Palladium Encore series concert of songs with a focus on the American heartland. The program features Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring, Stephen Montague’s Thule Ultima, The Ragtime of Life (written for William Hough) by Vernon Taranto, Samuel Barber’s Knoxville Summer of 1915 (op. 24 for voice and orchestra), and Leonard Bernstein’s “Glitter and be Gay” from Candide. Mark Sforzini directs, soprano soloist Jennifer Sanchez provides guest vocals, and Creative Loafing’s own political editor and classical music enthusiast, Wayne Garcia, hosts a post-concert talkback (dessert included).  

Tuesday, April 1, 7:30 p.m., Palladium Theater, 253 Fifth Ave. N., St. Petersburg, $12-$17, 727-822-3590.
