Cellist Jeffrey Zeigler joins ProMusica to premiere the orchestra’s 70th commissioned work—a new concerto by Grammy- and Pulitzer-nominated composer Andy Akiho. Returning as part of our Composer/Performer Project, Akiho also performs his Fantasy for Steel Pans and Orchestra. Beethoven’s bold yet cheerful Symphony No. 4 closes the program, blending the classical with the contemporary.
