Nashville Symphony | Wayne Marshall, conductor, piano and organ


Leonard Bernstein: Symphonic Dances from West Side Story
Francis Poulenc: Concerto for Organ, Strings, and Timpani
George Gershwin: Second Rhapsody for Piano and Orchestra
Edward Kennedy “Duke” Ellington: Harlem

Each season, we showcase the Martin Foundation Concert organ in a symphonic concert. Enter the versatile Wayne Marshall, leading from the console as soloist in the Poulenc Organ Concerto and from the piano for Gershwin’s Second Rhapsody. On the podium, he conducts Harlem and the Symphonic Dances from West Side Story, by American icons whose mixing of jazz and classical idioms captured the spirit of 1950s and 1960s New York City.
