Summer at Orchestra Hall

Parker Plays Ravel

Fri Jul 26, 2024

Orchestra Hall

~2 hours, including intermission

This summer’s Roaring Twenties theme begins in earnest with this concert. Summer at Orchestra Hall Creative Partner Jon Kimura Parker takes the stage to perform Ravel’s sparkling Piano Concerto in G. Ravel composed this concerto after a four-month concert tour of North America, which included frequent visits to Harlem’s jazz clubs with George Gershwin. Known for his dynamic performances, Parker will deliver a performance of this beloved concerto that you won’t want to miss! Plus, rising star Stephanie Childress conducts lively suites from three pieces written for the stage that illustrate the enduring influence of jazz on orchestral music.
