Additional Information

Jacksonville native Marcus Roberts is widely known as one of today’s eminent jazz pianists. His trio, including drummer Jason Marsalis, joins forces with the Symphony and Music Director Laureate of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Robert Spano, for Gershwin's Concerto in F that blends classical, jazz and the blues in a unique American sound. Tchaikovsky's Fifth Symphony anchors the performance with the dramatic power that places it among classical masterworks. In a perfect pairing, Carlos Simon’s Motherboxx Connection tells the inspiring stories of African American heroes.
