The Orchestra Now (TŌN) will kick off TŌN at Rose Theater, its new two-concert series at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall, on Sunday, November 6 at 3 PM. The performance features music director Leon Botstein leading the Orchestra of young pre-professional musicians in an all-American composers program of works by Marc Blitzstein, Leonard Bernstein, and Aaron Copland. The guest vocalist will be mezzo-soprano Jill Grove, whose “superior technique” (Opera Today) has earned her recordings with the London and American Symphony Orchestras, as well as with the Metropolitan Opera, an ARIA award, and a Richard Tucker Foundation Career Grant.
