The Seattle Symphony and conductor Gerard Schwarz are back, this time in concert. We're at Benaroya Hall in Seattle to hear the orchestra play the Symphony No. 2 by Virgil Thomson. The guest of honor at the symphony's "Made in America" Festival is American composer David Diamond. We hear them play the "Introduction and Dance" from Diamond's Suite from the ballet, Tom.
