We end the season with fireworks made in the USA. DBR kicks off the festivities with his exciting new work. The sparkling talent of NJSO Principal Horn Chris Komer shines in a new concerto written for him by four leading jazz composers. Aaron Dworkin, the visionary founder of the Sphinx Organization which lifts up young Black and Latinx musicians, narrates Coleridge-Taylor’s moving Rhapsody with the words of our nation’s first president. And the City of Lights swirls around you in Gershwin’s beloved classic.
