Grams unites his talent of conducting the orchestra with his love of playing the violin. This concert creates a connection of classical masters, Bach, Corelli and Mozart and introduces a modern take on Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto.

“Before I became a conductor, I was a violinist in many orchestras around New York City. Making sound with an instrument is the thing I perhaps miss the most being a musician. For this special concert, I’m going to join our wonderful ESO musicians and play with them rather than just conduct them.

The music of Bach and Corelli have a very special place to me as its some of the earliest music that I can remember listening to as a young kid. This music will have a Baroque-Classical vibe – a certain verve to it that is going to be very palpable. Believe it or not, there will be some moments where we (orchestra and myself) will really connect and almost feel like we’re jammin’!”

– Andrew Grams, Music Director
