Bernard Tan's Aspirations Overture captures the spirit of the President's Young Performers Concert. 16-year-old saxophonist Samuel Phua will perform the lively and jazz-infused Concertino da Camera by French composer Jacques Ibert, and also Escapades, the concert version of John Williams' Oscar-nominated score for the movie Catch Me If You Can. Associate Conductor Jason Lai will round off the evening with Copland's captivating orchestral suite Appalachian Spring.
