Maine Public is the media sponsor of the Bangor Symphony Orchestra's Masterworks Season. In their next concert, on Sunday afternoon, April 7th, the BSO will celebrate American composers with a program anchored by Bernstein’s masterpiece of operetta, Candide. Works by William Grant Still, Lucas Richman, and Joan Tower open the concert before turning to Candide.
