The Todd Marcus Jazz Orchestra performs Blues for Tahrir as well as the premier of new pieces commissioned by Chamber Music America. The emotional works explore hope and loss, and are inspired by the Egyptian uprising of 2011 and Marcus’ recent travels to Egypt. Docent-led tours of the Egyptian galleries will be given during intermission.
