Curtain Talk

Saturday, October 5 // 6:30PM

Join us for a pre-concert discussion with Artistic Director Jason Weinberger and Iowa native Conor Hanick.

This casual thirty-minute session in Jebe Hall is designed to create conversation, provoke thought and enhance expectations for the performance that follows. Curtain Talks are free and open to all ticket-holders.

Performance: Opening-Night Gala: Bolero

This amazing program, inspired by the meeting of music and technology, features the talents of our players in Ravel’s mesmerizing Bolero and rarely-heard music by Beethoven. Iowa native Conor Hanick joins us for John Adams’ exuberant and jazzy Century Rolls for piano and orchestra, the perfect counterpoint to Jason Weinberger’s solo performance of New York Counterpoint by Steve Reich.

Beethoven – Wellington’s Victory
Adams – Century Rolls with Conor Hanick, piano
