Glenn Donnellan, NSO violin, on the program:
"This may be our sonic WOW program of the year! Haven't heard our new Rubenstein Family Organ yet? This concert includes the massive king of instruments in Poulenc's Organ Concerto, which will steep the Concert Hall in drama and mystery. Plus, Mendelssohn's 2nd Symphony bursts at the seams with juicy string parts, a majestic score, a choir, three vocal soloists, and the NSO playing at full throttle. Just TRY to keep those goosebumps at bay!"
