Yannick Nézet-Séguin Conductor
Jan Lisiecki Piano

Muhly Liar, Suite from Marnie (NY premiere)
Mendelssohn Piano Concerto No. 1
Schubert Symphony in C major ("Great")

A piano prodigy returns! Jan Lisiecki may be young, but he's already a seasoned master at the keyboard (and a regular with the Orchestra—he made his debut at age 18). He'll shine in Mendelssohn's innovative Piano Concerto No. 1. Yannick also brings us Schubert's Symphony in C major, his final completed symphony, and absolutely deserving of its less formal title: the “Great.”

Morning Musicales

Morning Musicales, presented by The West Philadelphia Committee, was inaugurated in 1962 and has continued since then without interruption. Inspired by the late Mrs. Frederick T. van Urk, Morning Musicales provides an opportunity for excellent young performers to appear before discriminating audiences with the possibility of review by professional music critics. The series also helps to provide funds to support projects associated with The Philadelphia Orchestra.

In its 56th year of presenting emerging artists in the Music World, Morning Musicales are held at The Ethical Society Building, 1906 S. Rittenhouse Square. Treat yourself to one or all three of these hour long concerts at 11 AM and meet the artist afterwards at a reception. Series tickets start at $50 and individual tickets may be purchased at the door for $20. If you are interested in receiving an invitation or attending, please contact the Volunteer Relations Office at dbyrne@philorch.org or go to Volunteer Events page.
