James Blachly and the Experiential Orchestra
Grammy winning conductor James Blachly brings his Experiential Orchestra to MSU to join forces with the MSU Symphony Orchestra in an evening of immersive music making. In true Experiential Orchestra style, the audience members will surround and be surrounded by the orchestra in creative ways as the combined ensembles present works by the Cali School Artist-in-Residence Jessie Montgomery, excerpts from Dame Ethel Smyth's opera, The Prison, and William Dawson's 1934 Symphony No. 1, Negro Folk Symphony, the composers only symphony.
