JENNIFER KOH violin
Our new season—and the continuation of Beethoven’s 250th birthday—begins with a literal bang in Wellington’s Victory, featuring Newark-based students joining the fray. Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony, used so powerfully in The King’s Speech, will send you home inches off the ground. Superstar Jennifer Koh plays the world premiere of a new work by Newark’s own MacArthur genius Tyshawn Sorey.
