LexPhil returns to the Singletary Center for the Arts for performance, and the conclusion of our Music Director & Conductor search! Conductor Finalist Julia Tai leads the orchestra in works by Missy Mazzoli, Bloch, and Mendelssohn. Tickets start at $25, and students and youth (17 & under) are $11!


ABOUT THE CONCERT

Inspired by her travels through the industrial landscape of Detroit and the silhouette of the River Rouge Auto Plant, Missy Mazzoli’s River Rouge Transfiguration reimagines the grit and noise of Motor City into a resonant work for orchestra. World-renowned cellist Gary Hoffman joins LexPhil as soloist for composer Ernest Bloch’s Schelomo; Hebraic Rhapsody, a work that embodies the spirit and sound of traditional Jewish music dating back thousands of years. The evening ends with Mendelssohn’s melodic Symphony No. 3, “Scottish”, his masterwork inspired by his travels as a young composer through Scotland.
