Conductor Nicholas McGegan’s sparkling performances are always Festival highlights. This mostly-Bach program features Awadagin Pratt in both a Bach keyboard concerto and Jesse Montgomery’s Rounds for piano and string orchestra, which he commissioned. Pratt has been long acclaimed for his musical insights and dynamic style. One of the crown jewels of Bach’s sacred works, Magnificat, will be performed by a stellar chorus of singers from the Aspen Opera Theatre Vocal Arts program. This uplifting concert in the intimate setting of Harris Concert Hall is sure to delight and inspire you!
