APRIL 30, 2020

Get a jump on the weekend with the new series VSO AFTERWORK. Join us for happy hour in the Orpheum at 5:30, a short format, no intermission concert hosted and introduced by the conductor in a casual atmosphere at 6:30, and then a mix and mingle with VSO musicians after the performance. You’ll still have time for dinner after the show!

Over the last three decades London- based conductor and organist Wayne Marshall has earned a reputation for making any orchestra feel like it can really play jazz. In this program he takes us on a tour of musical America with composers who could put a foot on either side of the jazz/classical divide. Don’t miss Marshall’s ferocious talent as he does double duty with the baton and piano.

This concert is part of the 2019-2020 VSO Afterwork series.
