Three-time Grammy Award–winning saxophonist Branford Marsalis takes the spotlight in John Williams’ inventive Escapades, an ‘impressionistic memoir’ of 1960s progressive jazz, based on his music for the film Catch Me If You Can. Marsalis then joins the Calgary Phil for Maurice Ravel’s great orchestral crescendo, Boléro. This gripping program is led by Music Director Rune Bergmann and opens with Richard Strauss’ musical meditation on life, death, and the beyond.

This benefit concert is made possible thanks to the extraordinary generosity of Heather Edwards.
