“[Marsalis has] a gracious poise and supple tone . . . and an insouciant swagger.” — The New York Times

“The Chamber Orchestra always walks a fine line . . . creating an experience that’s differentiated from what else goes on . . . So singular . . . it won’t be like anything else around.” — The Philadelphia Inquirer

Multiple Grammy Award–winning saxophonist, Tony Award nominee, and composer Branford Marsalis joins the highly celebrated Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia in an evening of Baroque masterpieces by Albinoni, Bach, Handel, Vivaldi, and others. Regarded as one of the finest jazz saxophone players today, Mr. Marsalis began recording classical works in 1986 with the famed English Chamber Orchestra, and he has gone on to perform with countless symphonies including multiple appearances with the New York Philharmonic.
