As part of its popular Around Town series, The Orchestra Now performs a free concert in the Bronx, led by conductor JoAnn Falletta, music director of the Buffalo Philharmonic and the Virginia Symphony and principal guest conductor of the Brevard Music Center. Renowned mezzo-soprano Susan Platts, who has appeared at Teatro alla Scala, Carnegie Hall, and Lincoln Center, is the guest soloist. The program will present two different composers’ versions of the Scheherazade tale along with Nielsen’s captivating Aladdin Suite. These free community outreach events have become engaging neighborhood activities and are a great opportunity to introduce families and new explorers to the joys of classical music.
