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.
