Curtis Symphony Orchestra/ Jack Wolgin Orchestral Concerts
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Monday, 23 April 2012 - 8:00 PM
Conductor: Kensho Watanabe
Contributor: Justine Lamb-Budge
In 1999 Curtis commissioned faculty member Jennifer Higdon’s blue cathedral to celebrate the school’s 75th anniversary. Championed by Robert Spano, the work established Higdon (’88) as a favorite American composer. It’s a fitting prelude to Bartók’s groundbreaking work highlighting virtuosity in each section of the orchestra and Brahms’s eloquent Double Concerto with eminent soloists from the Philadelphia Orchestra, violinist Juliette Kang and cellist Efe Baltacigil, both Curtis alumni.

Curtis Symphony Orchestra concerts this season highlight the school’s acclaimed conducting program with a student conductor leading one work on each concert (repertoire TBA).
