After the event, we’ll make our way from backstage to the Concert Hall for Concert Conversations, our pre-concert talk with Concertmaster Iggy Jang, guest conductor Marcelo Lehninger and guest artist Cameron Carpenter. These talks are designed to enhance your enjoyment of the concert and guide concertgoers through the music they are about to hear. These talks are always an entertaining look at the repertoire and composers before the performance even begins.

At 7:30 pm

Experience the grandeur of the organ performed by the extravagantly talented Cameron Carpenter. Critically hailed as “one of the rare musicians who changes the game of his instrument,” and the Jimi Hendrix of the symphonic world, Carpenter is an artist of unquestioned virtuosity. Marcelo Lehninger returns to lead this opening program that will surround audiences with sonic power and beauty through these French masterpieces by Poulenc and Saint-Saëns.

Marcelo Lehninger, conductor

Help us celebrate another successful season!
