The JSO teams up with the Jackson Youth Symphony Orchestra to present Mexican composer Arturo Marquez’s red-hot Congo del Fuego Nuevo. Decruck’s Heroic Poem is a work that the JSO recorded last season and features Michigan-native Leelanee Sterrett on French horn and Amy McCabe on trumpet from “The President’s Own” Marine Band. After our fiery first half, we close the concert with warm music from a cold place–Finnish composer Jean Sibelius’s famous 2nd Symphony!
Join us for a free, interactive lecture before the concert at 6:30pm.
