Classical Music goes beyond Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven. Composers continue writing for the orchestra today. The JSO is committed to bringing new music into the world while honoring Classical Music’s tradition and past. In this concert, we’re featuring composers that have local relationships to Michigan: Clarice Assad, Jonathan Bruce Brown, Jeremy Crosmer, Jessie Montgomery, and Marcus Norris. Join Maestro Matthew Aubin and the JSO for this online premiere. Maestro Aubin and select musicians will be chatting with viewers during the presentation so bring your questions.

21st Chopin and Friends Festival "New Vision" Concert
The New York Dance & Arts Innovations presents the New Vision concert, as part of the 21st Chopin & Friends Festival between Nov. 8- 26, 2019. The festival showcases innovative artists who emulate Chopin in uniting the traditional and the modern, the young and the mature, the national and the universal, in all the art forms.
This year is the 160th anniversary of the national Polish opera romantic composer - Stanisław Moniuszko. The New Vision concert's subject focuses on modern music dialogues with some of the themes used in Moniuszko's music: love, daily life, faith, and any national or folklore syndrome. Joined by the Four Corners Ensemble and guest artists Justyna Giermola, Helen Haas, Marina Renee Hogue, and members from the Argus Quartet, Clara Kim and Giancarlo Latta, the program consists of music by the composers-in-residence, Jakub Polaczyk, Reza Vali, and Shuying Li, as well as the two winning compositions awarded in the 2nd International New Vision Composition Competition: Tomas Peire Serrate’s “Five Haiku" and Charles Peck’s “Splinter."
