Violinist Tail Murray and conductor Vinay Parameswaran

It only takes two this week for your Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra: a mighty journey with Wynton Marsalis' Violin Concerto and a glorious struggle with Jean Sibelius' Symphony No. 5. Your guides are guest conductor Vinay Parameswaran and violinist Tai Murray, who talked with Julia Figueras about the extraordinary language of Marsalis and the exquisite sonorities of Sibeius.

A Strong Memorial baby and Greece Arcadia grad, Julia Figueras was the Music Director and mid-day host for WXXI Classical until June 30, 2023 when she retired after more than 26 years of service. She also hosted the award-winning monthly interview/performance show, Backstage Pass.
