Associate Conductor Jacob Joyce leads the Pittsburgh premiere of Mason Bates' mixed-media concerto, Philharmonia Fantastique. This masterpiece combines the artistic genius of a prominent American composer with the technological prowess of film and sound experts from Skywalker Ranch. The outcome is a remarkable odyssey through different mediums and into the heart of the orchestra.
"We don't always think about the orchestra as a marvel of technology, but it very much is one of the best examples of interactive technology we have."
—Composer Mason Bates, on the inspiration for making Philharmonia Fantastique
