Well-known American pianist Stewart Goodyear will accompany the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra for the first concert of the 2019-2020 Masterworks Series, Beethoven Discovers America. Music Director José-Luis Novo will lead the Symphony in performances on September 27 & 28 at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts. Bookending the performance will be the annual Opening Night Celebration, featuring culinary delicacies, open bar libations, and star-spangled surroundings. Following the concert, Maestro Novo, Goodyear, and Symphony musicians will join the event following the concert.

Goodyear has performed with major orchestras of the world, including the Philadelphia Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Cleveland Orchestra, Academy of St Martin in the Fields, Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Detroit Symphony, Seattle Symphony, and many more.
