Join the JSO in welcoming 2009 Jackson High School graduate Marcus Norris for the premiere of his violin concerto GLORY. Leonard Bernstein the performer inspires this program. Canadian virtuoso pianist Marika Bournaki joins the JSO to perform Beethoven’s First Piano Concerto, a work that Bernstein played and conducted from the piano. Haydn’s whimsical 88th Symphony, which Bernstein famously conducted with his eyebrows, opens the program. Pulitzer Prize winning composer Caroline Shaw’s Entr’Acte, a work inspired by Haydn, demonstrates a contemporary take on these two classical masters.
