Led by Music Director Jed Gaylin, the five part series will take place on Sunday evenings at 5 p.m. and will call upon world-renowned soloists who have been audience favorites from past Bay-Atlantic Symphony performances. The 1,000-seat Music Box at Borgata has welcomed an array of talent over the years and continues to do so with upcoming acts such as Joan Rivers, Chicago, Sting and The Jonas Brothers.
"The concept of taking the great classical masterpieces into a casino showroom is a way to bring this music to new audiences who might not have heard a live symphony orchestra. At the same time, it brings our loyal audience members to a new and different performance venue," said Bay-Atlantic Symphony Executive Director Paul Herron. "We are constantly trying to find new, exciting ways to present classical music and to build on our established partnerships."
One of the highlights of the series will be the August 4, all-Mozart concert with Canadian-born violinist Kai Gleusteen as soloist. Recognized worldwide as soloist, concertmaster of the Orchestra del Gran Teatre del Liceu of Barcelona Spain, Gleusteen began his career at age five. Throughout the years, Gleusteen has had the opportunity to learn from top violinists and teachers such as Nathan Milstein, Ivan Galamian, Josef Gingold, Dorothy Delay, and Zakhar Bron. Flowing through Mozart’s quintessential works, the orchestra will make their way through Symphony No. 41 in C major, K. 551, the works of "Jupiter" and Violin Concerto in D major, K. 218.
For those newer to the sounds of the symphony and its musical masterpieces, the series will create a great way to ease into the genre through an intimate venue with exceptional acoustics. While enjoying the music, make sure to visit the venue bar for a cocktail to pair with Beethoven's upbeat and joyful, Symphony No. 8. Keep it classy, Atlantic City.
Tickets will go on sale Saturday, May 4 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased through Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
