In a capstone to our Leonard Bernstein centenary celebration, we present his quirky, complex, irreverent, and very humorous operetta Candide, with orchestral staging.
Eric Carlson joined The Philadelphia Orchestra in 1986 as second trombone. Before joining the Orchestra he held similar positions with the Baltimore Symphony for six years and with the North Carolina Symphony for three years. His primary teachers were Edward Kleinhammer and Arnold Jacobs, both former members of the Chicago Symphony.
Mr. Carlson has taught at the Peabody Conservatory of Music in Baltimore and at Temple University in Philadelphia.
