Honors Week Tribute—A Michael Tilson Thomas Journey

12/4/2019 at 8:00 PM


In this performance, we celebrate the wide world of Michael Tilson Thomas—affectionately known as MTT—from his relationships with Stravinsky and Copland to his own compositions and collaborations with artists such as James Brown. We’ll feature world-class musicians like soprano Susanna Phillips, cellist Oliver Herbert, the Sixth Floor Trio, and alumni of MTT’s own New World Symphony. The program is curated by MTT’s student and protégé Teddy Abrams.
