Waco Symphony Orchestra Presents Branford Marsalis
From his early acclaim as a saxophonist bringing new energy and new audiences to the jazz art, Branford Marsalis has refined and expanded his talents and his horizons as a musician, composer, bandleader, and educator—a 21st-century mainstay of artistic excellence. Marsalis’s numerous awards include three Grammys and (together with his father and brothers) a citation as a Jazz Master by the National Endowment for the Arts. Marsalis will be performing: Milhaud: Scaramouche, Suite for Saxophone and Orchestra, op. 165c, Glazunov: Concerto for Alto Saxophone and Orchestra, op. 109, E-flat major, Ravel: Daphnis et Chloé: Suite No. 2, and Rachmaninoff: Symphonic Dances, op. 45.
