BATON ROUGE, LA - Next week, the Baton Rouge Symphony opens the 2018-19 season with a focus on community partnerships, and the power of music to bring people together. The Southern University Concert Choir provides the prelude to the “American Greats” season opener, with a performance of Negro Spirituals at a pre-concert reception at Taylor Porter Law Firm, for ticket holders and guests.
The main concert will take place at First Baptist Church, with a program including Copland’s Rodeo and Dvořák’s “New World Symphony,” plus a Harp Concerto by Grammy- and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Jennifer Higdon. The Harp Concerto, a co-commission by the Baton Rouge Symphony and several partner orchestras, will feature Yolanda Kondonassis.
