A New Year’s Celebration at Orchestra Hall
December 31, 2022 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm
One event on January 1, 2023 at 2:00 pm
The incomparable Marin Alsop takes the podium at Orchestra Hall to ring in a new year with the Minnesota Orchestra and soloist Awadagin Pratt. One of Leonard Bernstein’s proteges, Alsop fittingly opens the evening with Bernstein’s animated Overture to Candide before shifting to the Minnesota premiere of Jessie Montgomery’s Rounds for Piano and Orchestra, a work written for pianist Awadagin Pratt, who premiered it early in 2022. A New Year’s celebration wouldn’t be complete without adventure and passion, and the Orchestra brings that in multitudes in Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s beloved Scheherazade.
