NJSO Presents DvoraK's Cello Concerto, Schubert's Unfinished Symphony
The New Jersey Symphony Orchestra presents Dvorák's Cello Concerto, Schubert's "Unfinished" Symphony and the NJSO premiere of Schumann's Konzertstück for Four Horns, March 22-24. Music Director Xian Zhang conducts.
Johannes Moser performs Dvorák's Cello Concerto in place of Andrew Norman's Cello Concerto, which will not be completed in time for its scheduled East Coast premiere on this program. Performances of the Norman concerto-an NJSO co-commission-will be postponed to a future season. To complement the Dvorák concerto, Zhang has chosen Schubert's Eighth Symphony in place of Brahms' Symphony No. 4.
Performances take place on March 22 at 8 pm at Richardson Auditorium in Princeton, March 23 at 8 pm at NJPAC in Newark and March 24 at 3 pm at Mayo Performing Arts Center in Morristown.
On March 23, the NJSO's celebrated pro-am experience #OrchestraYou brings amateur instrumentalists and Orchestra musicians together for a fun post-concert session. Participants will rehearse and perform Dvorák's Slavonic Dance No. 1, Op. 46, under the baton of NJSO Youth Orchestras Artistic Director José Luis Domínguez. #OrchestraYou is free to the evening's concertgoers; there are no auditions, but registration is required by March 15. More information is available at njsymphony.org/orchestrayou.
NJSO Accents also include Classical Conversations beginning one hour before the March 23 and 24 performances. The NJSO will collect non-perishable food items at all concerts as part of its annual food drive. More information on NJSO Accent events is available at njsymphony.org/accents.
