GERSHWIN An American in Paris

We end the season with fireworks made in America. DBR kicks off the festivities with his exciting new work. The sparkling talent of New Jersey Symphony Principal Horn Chris Komer shines in a new concerto written for him by four leading jazz composers. Aaron Dworkin, the visionary founder of the Sphinx Organization which lifts up young Black and Latinx musicians, narrates Coleridge-Taylor’s moving Rhapsody with the words of our nation’s first president. And the City of Lights swirls around you in Gershwin’s beloved classic.

Bank of America is proud to sponsor the New Jersey Symphony Resident Artistic Catalyst.
