with Branford Marsalis
In 1972, a group of young artists made history by creating an orchestra without a conductor in which musicians led themselves democratically. Since then, the Grammy-winning Orpheus Chamber Orchestra has used their signature collaborative method to give flight to vibrant, unconventional interpretations. Orpheus performances unfold dynamically, moment-by-moment, creating an energy shared by musicians and audiences alike. For this special performance, Orpheus is joined by visionary jazz saxophonist Branford Marsalis. Praised by The New York Times for bringing “a graceful poise and supple tone . . . and an insouciant swagger” to his classical performances, Marsalis has proven that his musical command knows no bounds.
