An Evening Under the Conductor's Baton
Among the premiere cultural organizations in Louisiana, for years the Baton Rouge River Center has generously lent its stage to renowned soloists and conductors. For an evening that’s as musical as it is historical, visitors should flock to the Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra. Names recognizable even to the least concert-going of us have enthralled audiences from one season to the next, including famed violinist Itzhak Perlman and songwriter Natalie Cole, cellist Yo-Yo Ma and jazz trumpeter Chris Botti.
Throughout the year, the Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra’s calendar brims with legendary performers and local talent too. Grab the whole family’s attention with tickets to see five-time Grammy Award winning vocalist Dianne Reeves this month or hold out for E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial in Concert. Hear John Williams’ fabulous score as if for the very first time when Steven Spielberg’s classic tale of boyhood comes to life under the baton of a full orchestra. Now that's music to our ears!
