Program Notes: 

The National Orchestral Institute and Festival (NOI) brings together talented young musicians at the beginning of their careers for a month of professional development and music-making.

Chosen by a rigorous, cross-country audition process, NOI participants quickly coalesce into dynamic ensembles that perform adventuresome programming.

Asher Fisch leads the National Festival Orchestra as both conductor and soloist in Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 17 in G Major, K. 453. He conducts Mahler’s Symphony No. 6 in A Minor, “Tragic” on the second half of the program.
