    Join Lexington Symphony for a special preview of its upcoming concert exploring classical/jazz fusion. Resonant of the boldness and nostalgia of the jazz age, this open dress rehearsal performance will feature a distinctive lineup of rousing jazz-based selections. Informed by Music Director Jonathan McPhee's admiration for mentor Leonard Bernstein, the program will include Bernstein's symphonic suite from the 1954 film "On the Waterfront," a symphonic arrangement of Gershwin's iconic and beloved American opera "Porgy and Bess" (which Bernstein championed), and Howard Brubeck's "Dialogues for Jazz Combo and Orchestra" (which Bernstein premiered). Performing the Brubeck piece with the Symphony will be alto saxophonist and founder of Lexington High School’s jazz program, Jeffrey Leonard, and LHS jazz program alumni Malcolm Campbell (on piano), Raviv Markovitz (on bass), and Joe Musacchia (on drums). Informal Q&A with Music Director Jonathan McPhee at intermission. Tickets for this special preview concert are available at the door only.
