Nicola Benedetti - Violin
Westminster Symphonic Choir - Women's chorus

Program
Marsalis - Violin Concerto in D major
INTERMISSION
Holst - The Planets

That's Wynton Marsalis, master of New Orleans jazz and classical trumpet. The sensational Nicola Benedetti has been raising the roof around the globe with the jazz-inspired Violin Concerto Marsalis wrote for her; this performance—her Philadelphia Orchestra subscription debut—highlights our multi-year exploration of American Sounds. And you may think you know Holst's astrological work of art, The Planets, but it's truly otherworldly experienced live, including an off stage women's chorus. The women of the Westminster Symphonic Choir provide the ethereal voices, with our good friend Cristian Macelaru leading the musical forces.

These concerts will be LiveNote enabled.

These concerts are part of the Fred J. Cooper Memorial Organ Experience, supported through a generous grant from the Wyncote Foundation.
