Part of Music

Presented by Symphony Space and The Orchestra Now

The Orchestra Now returns to Symphony Space as they continue their Around Town series of FREE concerts with this concert for Upper West Side families and music lovers.

Conducted by Zachary Schwartzman, TŌN's resident conductor

ENESCU Romanian Rhapsody No. 1
"This piece is full of many characters and colors. I love how it's both energetic and intimate." -Sangwon Lee, clarinet

SIBELIUS The Swan of Tuonela
"I love Sibelius and his ability to create such unique textures and moods in his music. This seems to be no exception. It's dark yet beautiful, and the image it paints of a swan floating through the realm of the dead is so clear you can almost feel it." -Alana Shannon, cello

RIMSKY-KORSAKOV Capriccio espagnol
"This is a crown jewel for violinists. It's a thrilling snapshot of traditional Spanish culture through the lens of an outsider." -Amos C. Fayette, violin

EINOJUHANI RAUTAVAARA Symphony No. 8, The Journey
"Listening to this symphony is like sweeping through a mountainous landscape-vast and expansive with lush orchestration." -Clara Engen, violin
