Our annual casual concert features one Beethoven’s most popular symphonies – the 7th. Kentucky-born Tessa Lark plays a bluegrass-inspired violin concerto written for her by Michael Torke. Works by Aaron Copland complete the American theme.
We co-commissioned Jennifer Higdon's Mandolin Concerto, together with the Munich Philharmonic and Chicago Philharmonic, and now we are thrilled to perform it for you. In addition to welcoming Avi Avital, the first classical mandolinist ever nominated for a Grammy, we are delighted that Jennifer herself will be on hand to introduce the piece for you!
