Eric Jacobsen and the Orlando Philharmonic take the stage of fabulous Steinmetz Hall for the grand opening of the 2022-2023 Classics Series! Join us as Adele Anthony (“plays beautifully, with warm, luminous tone…” ~ Gramophone) reveals the graceful melodies and dizzying virtuosity of Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto. And in Holst’s Planets you’ll hear Mars’s bellicose hammer blows; Venus’s gentle serenity; Mercury’s fleet-footedness; and Neptune’s mysteries with voices singing wordlessly…fading away into the unknown. Plus, works by contemporary composers Colin Jacobsen and James Lee III’s celebratory opener welcoming you to the excitement of hearing music in our new home in our 30th Anniversary Season.
