      World Premiere! Commissioned in honor of Percy Browning
NIELSEN: Clarinet Concerto, Op 57
       Michael Wayne, clarinet
MENDELSSOHN: Symphony No. 3 in A Minor, Op 56 “Scottish”

Our Orchestral Series concludes with a glorious symphony inspired by Scotland and a concerto that prompted critical reviews at its first hearing. Nielsen’s Clarinet Concerto went on to become a much-heralded work and we’re thrilled to welcome Michael Wayne (Boston Symphony Orchestra) in his first appearance with the CCO.  In a fitting tribute to our long-time patron and dear friend Percy Browning (1935-2021) who was an avid supporter of new music, we are privileged to give the world premiere of a work we had written in her honor as part of our Season of Inspiration.

Be sure to arrive early for the Pre-concert Chat, free to all ticket-holders.  Seth Grosshandler (composer) and Michael Wayne (clarinetist) will join CCO Music Director Cornelia Laemmli Orth to share their thoughts on the evening’s program.
