“[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.
