NJSO presents Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto with George Li

(NEWARK, NJ) -- The New Jersey Symphony Orchestra and Music Director Xian Zhang present Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto with pianist George Li, December 5–8 in Newark and New Brunswick. The program opens with the NJSO premiere of Anna Clyne’s Within Her Arms—a tender string work Clyne wrote after the loss of her mother—and closes with Dvořák’s Eighth Symphony.

Performances take place on December 5 at 1:30pm, December 6 at 8:00pm and December 8 at 3:00pm at NJPAC in Newark, and on December 7 at 8:00pm at State Theatre New Jersey in New Brunswick.

NJ Advance Media praised Li’s skill in his NJSO debut, when the pianist performed Prokofiev’s Third Piano Concerto during the 2018 Winter Festival: “Li delivered full, 88-key arpeggios in the Andantino and the insanely difficult flurry of notes in the finale with exquisite skill.”

Concert tickets start at $20 and are available for purchase at njsymphony.org or 1.800.ALLEGRO (255.3476). Student tickets are $10, available at njsymphony.org/students one month in advance.

December 7 is College Night; $10 tickets for college students include the concert and an exclusive post-concert party. More information on College Night is available at njsymphony.org/college.

NEW JERSEY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

Named “a vital, artistically significant musical organization” by The Wall Street Journal, the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra embodies that vitality through its statewide presence and critically acclaimed performances, education partnerships and unparalleled access to music and the Orchestra’s superb musicians.

Music Director Xian Zhang—a “dynamic podium presence” The New York Times has praised for her “technical abilities, musicianship and maturity”—continues her acclaimed leadership of the NJSO. The Orchestra presents classical, pops and family programs, as well as outdoor summer concerts and special events. Embracing its legacy as a statewide orchestra, the NJSO is the resident orchestra of the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark and regularly performs at State Theatre New Jersey in New Brunswick, Count Basie Center for the Arts in Red Bank, Richardson Auditorium in Princeton, Mayo Performing Arts Center in Morristown and bergenPAC in Englewood. Partnerships with New Jersey arts organizations, universities and civic organizations remain a key element of the Orchestra’s statewide identity.

In addition to its lauded artistic programming, the NJSO presents a suite of education and community engagement programs that promote meaningful, lifelong engagement with live music. Programs include school-time Concerts for Young People and the NJSO Youth Orchestras family of student ensembles, led by José Luis Domínguez. NJSO musicians annually perform original chamber music programs at community events in a variety of settings statewide through the NJSO Community Partners program.
