Juilliard Chineke! Orchestra, at Lincoln Center
Monday March 20, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$45 – $85
Europe’s first majority-Black and ethnically diverse orchestra, Chineke! Orchestra was founded with the intention of providing opportunities for composers and performers of color in a field that traditionally minimizes non-white participants. The orchestra’s Lincoln Center debut (part of their inaugural North American tour), presented in partnership with the New York Philharmonic and Lincoln Center, offers a bravura selection of thought-provoking works led by guest conductor Andrew Grams of the Elgin Symphony Orchestra. The program will include the trailblazing 20th-century composer Florence Price’s Symphony No. 1; Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto, featuring NY Phil Principal Clarinet and artistic director of Juilliard’s Music Advancement Program (MAP) Anthony McGill; and Fate Now Conquers by the contemporary American composer Carlos Simon.
