The New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) presents Munich Symphony Orchestra conductor Nodoka Okisawa and Grammy-nominated violinist Robert McDuffie on Sunday, February 19, 2023 at 3 p.m.
In 1945, the Munich Symphony Orchestra was founded to serve its citizens through music and remains the heart of the orchestra’s mission today. For this appearance, the orchestra presents Beethoven’s epic Fifth Symphony. Additionally, violinist Robert McDuffie plays Brahms’ passionate violin concerto. “One of the finest violinists of our time,” says The Buffalo News. “He played with great clarity and precision.”
Strongly attached to Munich and its musical traditions, the Munich Symphony Orchestra is one of the city’s four symphony orchestras and one of the most renowned ensembles. Grammy-nominated violinist Robert McDuffie enjoys a dynamic and multi-faceted career. While performing as a soloist with the world’s greatest orchestras, he also shared the stage with Chuck Leavell and the late Gregg Allmann in Midnight Rider and with the actress/screenwriter Anna Deavere Smith in Martin Luther King, Jr.’s letter from a Birmingham prison.
