BSO Presents Ellington and Gershwin

BSO Presents Ellington and Gershwin

Pianist extraordinaire Aaron Diehl joins the BSO for Ellington’s intoxicating “New World A-Comin’” and Gershwin’s Second Rhapsody, an animated and jaunty follow-up to Rhapsody in Blue. Guest conductor Ken-David Masur leads the orchestra in Polish composer Grażyna Bacewicz’s Overture, featuring exhilarating passages from the strings and horns, and closes the program with Brahms' sunny and uplifting Second Symphony.

This concert repeats on Sat., February 19 at 8 PM at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall in Baltimore, MD and on Sun., February 20 at 3 PM at The Music Center at Strathmore in North Bethesda, MD.
