This is another opportunity to hear Bramwell Tovey's "The Lincoln Tunnel Cabaret" that has a virtuoso part that, to my ears, is as challenging and rewarding artistically as famed bandleader-trombonist Arthur Pryor's early 20th Century recording of "Bluebells of Scotland". Here's a showpiece and audience pleaser that I think should be showing up on other orchestras' pops and/or summertime concerts. And it's always good to hear "Rodeo" and any Dvor^a'k symphony.
