On Friday, March 11, 2022 at 8:00 PM, the Philadelphia Orchestra will return to Hill Auditorium for the first performance of a two-day residency. Friday’s program, which will be conducted by music director Yannick Nézet-Séguin, features Wynton Marsalis’s Tuba Concerto and Johannes Brahms’s Symphony No. 1 in c minor, Op. 68.
The Tuba Concerto is particularly exciting, because it will feature Carol Jantsch, principal tubist of the Philadelphia Orchestra, the first female tuba player in a major symphony orchestra, and University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance alumna! Jantsch performed the world premiere of the concerto in Philadelphia in December 2021.
Tickets for the Philadelphia Orchestra are available at the Michigan League Ticket Office or on the University Musical Society website. Students may purchase discounted tickets for $12 or $20 with valid student ID, or, for a free ticket, make use of the UMS Bert’s Ticket program!
