David Hayes Conducts the Mannes Orchestra

March 8 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm EST

Led by David Hayes, the Mannes Orchestra returns to Alice Tully Hall in a concert featuring a symphonic world premiere by Adolphus Hailstork, a New York premiere by Zhou Tian, a New York premiere by Jennifer Higdon featuring Valerie Coleman, and the second-ever public performance of the long-lost and overlooked Black American composer and violinist John Thomas Douglass’s Pilgrim Overture, in a newly orchestrated score by Philip Ewell.

Known for their bold and adventurous programming, the Mannes Orchestra has been hailed by The New York Times as an orchestra whose quality is “a revelation”,” and for their “intensity of focus.” In recent seasons, the orchestra has carved out a reputation for risk-taking and bold performances including recent world premieres of works by Julius Eastman and Johanna Beyer, a 2019 all-Copland concert featuring a new dramatic staging of Copland’s showdown with Senator Joseph McCarthy, and the first-ever screening of Fog of War by Errol Morris with live orchestra (scored by Philip Glass).
