Program Notes

Yannick and the Orchestra open the season with Saint-Saëns's stunning Piano Concerto No. 2. And who better to join us than the incomparable Lang Lang, hailed by the New York Times as “the hottest artist on the classical music planet.” Accompanying Valerie Coleman’s stirring Umoja, Anthem for Unity, the innovative style of BalletX will be on full display as they debut new choreography from acclaimed American ballet dancer Tiler Peck for a showstopping collaboration in this special concert and gala event—an unforgettable start to our 123rd season.
