This season, we host two extraordinary guest orchestras—the Philadelphia Orchestra under the direction of Yannick Nézet-Séguin, and the Toronto Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Gustavo Gimeno. Piano recitals by internationally renowned Canadian artist Angela Hewitt and Korean superstar soloist Seong-Jin Cho round out the series and underscore the “great” in Great Performers!
