    The Alexandria Symphony Orchestra, led by Music Director James Ross, celebrates the past and present of American music.  In recognition of Leonard Bernstein’s 100th birthday celebration, the orchestra will perform two pieces from his acclaimed musicals, including the Overture to West Side Story and “Three Dances Episodes” from On the Town. The concert also features the world premiere of Jessica Krash’s cello concerto with cellist Tanya Anisimova. Closing the program will be Felix Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 3 “Scottish,” loosely based on the composer’s travels in Scotland with his longtime friend Karl Klingemann.
