America's contributions to the world of music are vast. Ryan Bancroft, winner of the 2018 Malko Competition for Young Conductors, makes his May Festival debut with a revelrous program of American life. This is what the Festival is known for—familiar names like Stravinsky and Copland meet inspired new works by living composers Adolphus Hailstork and Derrick Spiva, who's Prisms, Cycles, Leaps is "enormous fun to listen to" (Los Angeles Times).
