MICHAEL ABELS New Work (World Premiere, NJSO Co-Commission)


BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 7

We are beyond thrilled to welcome you back. Beethoven’s Seventh mourns and dances and gives voice to everything humanity has lived through this past year and a half. We’ve got brand new music to mark the new season, too: Michael Abels, who wrote the score for the Oscar-winning film Get Out, launches us with his riveting new orchestral work. And our new Resident Artistic Catalyst, Daniel Bernard Roumain, taps his Haitian roots as he solos in his own Voodoo Violin Concerto.

Bank of America is the generous sponsor of Daniel Bernard Roumains performance of Voodoo Violin Concerto. Bank of America is proud to sponsor the NJSO Resident Artistic Catalyst.
