Event Details

Classical Series

2022 - 2023

The energy and inspiration of Gershwin, Marsalis and Tchaikovsky in one concert!


Notes About the Music

Gershwin's Promenade (Walking the Dog) is from the Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers' seventh film together, Shall We Dance. In the film, Fred's character borrows a dog just so he can meet Ginger during passenger-dog-walking-hour on the cruise ship they are both on.

The Violin Concerto by Wynton Marsalis was composed for Scottish violinist, Nicola Benedetti. The two collaborated on the piece for months often working note-by-note over transatlantic phone calls.

Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 6 premiered in Saint Petersberg, Russia on October 28, 1893, nine days prior to his death. It was his final completed Symphony.
