BRANFORD MARSALIS IN CONCERT WITH THE PSO

Héctor Guzmán, Conductor

FEBRUARY 17, 2024 • 8 PM | Eisemann Center

Just a few days after Valentine’s, our orchestra can’t wait to perform with an acclaimed artist who shares our love of music! Branford Marsalis received early acclaim as a saxophonist bringing new energy and new audiences to jazz. Since then, the multiple Grammy-winning icon has refined and expanded his talents and his horizons as a musician, composer, and educator to become a 21st century mainstay of artistic excellence.
