Joe Jackson: Four Decade Tour

Tuesday, May 7th 2019 at 7:30PM

Starting February 2019, Jackson and the band will embark on a world tour, playing shows throughout the US and Europe.

In his own words: “So, here comes a big tour. We want to celebrate the fact that this is happening after 40 years – anything else, would be like sulking in a room by yourself on your own birthday party. Looking for some way to organize a show out of 40 years’ worth of material, I decided to draw on five albums, each representing a decade: Look Sharp (1979) Night And Day

Made in America

Made in America

Saturday, October 12 at 8:00 PM at the Michigan.

An orchestra reacts to and serves the cultural needs of its community. Through this process, the sound and identity of an orchestra are molded. For Joan Tower, the individuality formed through this process became the colors to fill the canvas of Made In America. Premiered in 2005, the piece toured through orchestras in all 50 states filling halls of all shapes and sizes. The piece inherently celebrates and embraces differences as it is given a new identity with every stop it mak

Liszt & Tchaikovsky

Saturday, November 2 at 8:00 PM at the Michigan.

We soar through the Rocky Mountains to the Garden of Gods and atop Pikes Peak in Wang Jie’s Symphonic Overture on “America the Beautiful.” From the orchestra comes a majestic fugue which traces the silhouette of this prominent peak with faint echos of the familiar patriotic song written atop the same mountain. Cascading crowns of notes continue through Liszt’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in E-flat major. Your A2SO is joined by pianist, Anton Nel displaying the pinnacle of pianistic ac

Mozart Birthday Bash

Mozart Birthday Bash

January 18, 2020 at 8:00 PM at the Michigan.

The imaginative energy that fills Mozart’s “Turkish” Violin Concerto is that of youth and idealism. While it does not contain a cadenza, his Fifth Violin Concerto features writing that exudes the freedom and lyricism that would suggest otherwise. The A2SO proudly welcomes Itamar Zorman as the featured soloist on this captivating work. The theme of youth continues with Mozart’s Symphony No. 29 in A major. Written at the age of 18-years-old, it is overflowing with a sense of self-con

West Side Story

Don’t let the mysterious shimmer that opens this concert and Diana Syrse’s Colección de Readlidades deceive you–this program packs a remarkably vivacious punch.

To Puerto Rico we go next with Roberto Sierra’s Concerto for Saxophones and Orchestra as the A2SO is joined by saxophonist and Detroit native, James Carter.
