Wrapping up our wonderful 2018-2019 season is the excellent, standard-setting Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, performing music of Felix Mendelssohn with the young Canadian pianist Jan Lisiecki. “Edge of the seat intensity” (New York Times) is an identifying characteristic for Orpheus, known for conductorless concerts that impart the intimacy and warmth of a chamber ensemble. It’s a rare experience to hear both a symphony and a concerto in one Coolidge Auditorium evening, especially enjoyable with electrifying partners like these. Valerie Coleman’s Phenomenal Women caps off the concert; inspired by a Maya Angelou poem, her composition honors a trio who truly fit that description: Angelou, Serena Williams, and Michelle Obama—with a final movement bearing a universal dedication: “Every Woman.” Pre-concert conversation at 6:30pm.
