Hidden Gems: 

Orchestral Music of Black Composers

Saturday, March 9, 2019 -7:30

Premium: $45, Regular: $40 

The music of black composers is too rarely heard in our concert halls, but thanks in part to a new wave of scholarship, more and more is available for performance. 

Maestro James Blachly has carefully curated this concert of music featuring a "highlight reel" of music from this beautiful, under-performed repertoire.


Musical Friendships

Saturday, April 13, 2019 - 7:30 PM

Premium: $ 45, Regular: $40

Brahms's friendship with Joseph Joachim was one of the most collaborative and productive in the history of music, and Maestro Blachly's long-standing musical friendship with Saint Lawrence String Quartet violinist Owen Dalby goes back many years. 

To round out this concert featuring musical friendships, the JSO performs Elgar's Enigma Variations, a piece of music composed as a "portrait"of his closest friends.
