Renowned for its versatility, the Czech National Symphony Orchestra (CNSO) has earned a preeminent position among both Czech and Europe's top symphonic ensembles. The orchestra is highly sought after and has worked with some of the world's most prolific composers, conductors, and performers such as Ennio Morricone, Branford and Wynton Marsalis, and Plácido Domingo.

The Emory program features the CNSO and Leonard performing an evening of Czech music including Dvorak's 9th Symphony.

 

Please Note – The concert date has been changed to Friday, February 15, 2019 at 8 p.m. 

As a testament to her talent, Isabel Leonard has been invited to sing at the Metropolitan Opera in New York with Andrea Bocelli on Sunday, February 17, 2019 – the same date as our originally-scheduled concert.  We recognize that singing at the Met with Bocelli is the opportunity of a lifetime, and in order to support this opportunity, we have agreed to change the date of the Emory performance.
