- Welcome to Music Hall! These in-person concerts will be socially distanced, limited capacity and will adhere to all safety protocols.
- Gabriella Smith’s Carrot Revolution, named from a quote attributed to Paul Cézanne, is a musical reaction to the unconventional way art and objects are presented at The Barnes Collection.
- Christopher Cerrone’s path to musical composition began as “I worked my way backwards from Wendy Carlos’s electronic re-imaginings of Beethoven [from A Clockwork Orange] to actual Beethoven symphonies and became obsessed.”
- Copland’s technically dazzling Clarinet Concerto was commissioned by “The King of Swing,” renowned jazz clarinetist Benny Goodman.
- Duke Ellington's significant contributions to the American musical landscape include works for small ensembles to full orchestras, including his first collaboration with the CSO in 1966.
