NJSO presents Bach and Steven Mackey double concertos in May

(NEWARK, NJ) -- New Jersey Symphony Orchestra Concertmaster Eric Wyrick takes center stage in a pair of double concertos, pairing with electric guitarist Steven Mackey in Mackey’s Four Iconoclastic Episodes and with Sphinx Competition winner Annelle Gregory in Bach’s Concerto for Two Violins—May 16–19. Music Director Xian Zhang conducts the program, which also features Beethoven’s Leonore Overture No. 3 and Weber’s Overture to Oberon.

Performances take place on May 16 at 1:30pm and May 18 at 8:00pm at NJPAC in Newark; May 17 at 8:00pm at Richardson Auditorium in Princeton and May 19 at 3:00pm at State Theatre New Jersey in New Brunswick.

These performances are the second NJSO program featuring Mackey, a longtime NJSO collaborator and artistic partner, that week. He conducts and hosts a program of contemporary chamber works curated by composer Juri Seo with the NJSO Chamber Players on May 13 at 8 pm at Princeton University’s new Lewis Arts Complex.

Mackey and Wyrick gave the NJSO premiere of Four Iconoclastic Episodes at the closing concert of the 2017 NJSO Edward T. Cone Composition Institute. Mackey is the director of the Orchestra’s Princeton University-based program for emerging composers, which the NJSO founded in 2014.

Gregory is the 2017 senior winner of the Sphinx Competition. She appears with the NJSO as part of the Orchestra’s continuing partnership with the Sphinx Organization, a non-profit dedicated to transforming lives through the power of diversity in the arts.
