Countdown 3… Gersen

October 5 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

GBS begins its 79th Season continuing the search for a new Music Director with the second of four candidates*: Joshua Gersen.

Mr. Gersen is definitely the most local of candidates, having grown up in Monroe, performing with GCTYO (formerly the Greater Bridgeport Youth Orchestras) and conducting for them at age 11.  This is not his first time on the GBS podium; Maestro Gustav Meier invited him to conduct at age 16, Later in his storied career, he became Music Director of the New York Youth Symphony.

Mr. Gersen recently concluded his tenure as Assistant Conductor of the New York Philharmonic. The New York Times calls his conducting “Impassioned and incisive; the performance earned a standing ovation and prolonged applause from his colleagues in the orchestra.”

The concert program will center around Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4, and include a modern work by Carlos Simon: Fate Now Conquers.
