Join us as we welcome two guest soloists in a thrilling evening of musical collaborations with Ajibola Rivers, cello, and featuring Rhyuhn Green, an Anderson Artist, in the world premiere of his “Monarcha” concerto for piano and orchestra.
Ajibola Rivers is a Nigerian-Cherokee performing artist of many talents you may recognize from featured appearances with ARTol­erance and the Philadelphia Orchestra’s “our city, your orchestra” programs. He joins the ASO for Golter­mann’s Cello Concerto in G.
Rhyuhn Green, pianist and composer, is an Anderson Artist in Play on Philly’s Marian Anderson Young Artist Program, for rising musicians. John Sall and the ASO welcome Rhyuhn as composer-soloist in his Monarcha Piano Concerto No. 1 as a world premiere.
