Hold on to your hats because the Brooklyn Chamber Orchestra, led by artistic director Phil Nuzzo, is about to take you on a wild musical ride. They're crossing the pond and bringing a taste of Great Britain with them, featuring the rarely performed Fifth Symphony by William Boyce. But that's just the warm-up, because they're following it up with a cosmic journey through Gustav Holst's The Planets, presented in a fresh re-orchestration by British composer George Morton.
They'll top off the show with a powerful performance of Shostakovich's Piano Concerto No. 1 by the Russian pianist Vyacheslav Gryaznov and trumpet player Jesdelson Vasquez. This concert is not to be missed, so mark your calendars for Saturday, March 4.
