Classical Music goes beyond Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven. Composers continue writing for the orchestra today. The JSO is committed to bringing new music into the world while honoring Classical Music's tradition and past. In this concert, we're featuring composers that have local relationships to Michigan: Clarice Assad, Jonathan Bruce Brown, Jeremy Crosmer, Jessie Montgomery, and Marcus Norris. Join Maestro Matthew Aubin and the JSO for this online premiere. Maestro Aubin and select musicians will be chatting with viewers during the presentation so bring your questions. This program will be available on the JSO website, Facebook, and YouTube pages. In addition, the JSO will be creating supplemental educational materials so that this program can be presented in an interactive, virtual format to school groups. Message us for details about bringing this program to your school.
