The Orchestra of St. Luke’s and Principal Conductor Bernard Labadie kick off their 2022–2023 season at Carnegie Hall with the continuation of a multi-season focus on the works of Felix Mendelssohn. The concert begins with the breathless excitement of his Piano Concerto No. 1, a brisk and impactful work bookended by musical fireworks courtesy of pianist Benjamin Grosvenor. Also featured on the program is the complete incidental music Mendelssohn wrote for A Midsummer Night’s Dream, a fantastical and evocative rendering with vocal parts that are beautifully suited for soprano Lauren Snouffer and mezzo-soprano Cecelia Hall, with narration by David Hyde Pierce.
