Prokofiev’s jaunty and popular Lieutenant Kijé Suite
sets the tone for the evening’s star, Branford Marsalis,
genius of the jazz and classical worlds. He performs the
accessible Tallahatchie Concerto by Dutch composer
“Jacob TV,” who describes his music as "voyages of
discovery for moments of beauty, bliss and ecstasy." Jacques Lacombe leads an exhibition of celebrated American composer Samuel Barber in the deeply emotional Night Flight and the dramatic Symphony No. 1.
FRI NOV 30 ONLY - Arrive early for cool jazz by The Young Lions. Then join MAC members after the concert for a special reception with Branford Marsalis and entertainment by the Princeton High School Jazz Ensemble. Complimentary to ticket holders. Space is limited.
