    Date: October 14, 2017
    Time: 8:00 PM - 11:00 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    A standard-bearer of innovation and artistic excellence, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra is one of the world’s foremost chamber orchestras. Founded in 1972, Orpheus has recorded 71 albums, including the Grammy® Award-winning Shadow Dances: Stravinsky Miniatures, and premiered over 40 commissioned works.

    For their Norton Center debut, Orpheus is joined by superstar pianist André Watts who returns to the Norton Center after 27 years. Watts burst upon the music world at 16, when Leonard Bernstein chose him to make his debut with the New York Philharmonic in their Young People’s Concerts, broadcast nationwide on CBS-TV. Much-honored, Watts has played before royalty in Europe and heads of government all over the world; was awarded the Avery Fisher Prize in 1988; and at age 26, was the youngest person ever to receive an Honorary Doctorate from Yale University. Watts brings his elegant luster to Mozart’s first great Piano Concerto, No 9, the “Jeunehomme.”
