Detroit Symphony Orchestra LIVE: May 5, 2023

Kenneth Tompkins plays trombone

Hear Kenneth Thompkins premiere a new trombone concerto with the DSO live on Friday at 10:45 a.m. on Classical IPR.

The concerto draws inspiration from "father of the Underground Railroad" William Still's documentations of his experiences and observations as he led formerly enslaved people to freedom.

The DSO will also perform Beethoven's Symphony No. 8 and Brahms' "Variations on a Theme by Haydn."

Listen to the entire performance live on Classical IPR starting at 10:45 a.m. EST.
