Jonathon Heyward conducts Berlioz and Grieg
Featuring Micah McLaurin, piano
A Charleston son returns. Baltimore Symphony Orchestra Music Director Designate Jonathon Heyward remembers the first time he stepped onto a conductor’s rostrum: as an 8th-grader attending music class at Charleston County School of the Arts. Fast forward 17 years, and the Holy City phenom is making history as one of the youngest music directors of a major American orchestra. In his Spoleto debut, Heyward leads the full Festival Orchestra in Hector Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique, an epic symphonic self-portrait teeming with unbridled joy and tenderness, as well as Edvard Grieg’s piano concerto, featuring sought-after soloist and fellow Charlestonian Micah McLaurin.
