Kermit Poling, Music Director of the SSO, will conduct the '05 performance. The Youth Symphony will take the stage first and perform Hoe Down, from Rodeo by Copland as well as Broadway tunes arranged by Chase. The SSO will take the stage next and perform favorites including Raiders March from Raiders of the Lost Ark, Pink Panther Theme, Highlights from Annie and selected music from the movie Star Wars. Finally, the two orchestras will merge and perform a Salute to That's Entertainment, Sousa's rousing Washington Post March, Tchaikovsky's famous 1812 Overture as well as a special Armed Forces Salute.
