Xian Zhang conductor
Eric Owens narrator
New Jersey Symphony
New Jersey Symphony brass and woodwinds shine in works showcasing their special sound and virtuosity. We kick off with a brand new fanfare from jazz master Wynton Marsalis, Joan Tower’s take on Copland’s vision and Dvořák’s beguiling serenade. The full orchestra sparkles in Copland’s homage to Abraham Lincoln, narrated by the great American bass-baritone Eric Owens.
