he majesty of the Grand Canyon unfolds musically and visually in the spectacle of Ferde Grofé’s expansive musical palette accompanied by stunning projected imagery. Cuban-American cellist Thomas Mesa, a hit in his Madison recital last year, balances the program with the equally expansive and expressive Cello Concerto of Antonin Dvořák.
