This week I wrote a preview for the March 21 concert by the San Francisco Symphony at Symphony Center. The performance is part of Michael Tilson Thomas’s American Mavericks tour, which features the music of some the country’s most original and enduring composers, many of whom were seen as outcasts for much if not all of their careers. The orchestra makes only one stop in Chicago, but Carnegie Hall in New York is hosting events associated with American Mavericks for most of March.
