Mendelssohn is erroneously known as a conservative composer. Yet, his orchestral works such as this concerto, or the “Italian” Symphony, Midsummer Night’s Dream, or The Hebrides burst with imagination in effect, form, and feel. We will discuss the violin concerto and watch HSO’s performance with Amy Beth Horman, violin, from December 2014. This program will be presented on Zoom. A link will be shared with registrants in advance of the program.

Dr. Jed Gaylin, Music Director, Hopkins Symphony Orchestra
As Music Director, Dr. Jed Gaylin leads the Hopkins Symphony Orchestra (HSO), the Bay Atlantic Symphony, and Two Rivers Chambers Orchestra. He has been the Music Director of the HSO since 1993 during which time the orchestra has grown in size, prominence, and artistry into one of the country’s most accomplished university orchestras. The high standards of the orchestra and Jed’s belief in art’s ability to knit together and ignite new energy in our communities have resulted in collaborations with arts groups throughout Baltimore City, as well as with other non-profit and civic organizations.
Dr. Gaylin earned both a Bachelor of Music in piano and as Master of Music in conducting at the Oberlin Conservatory, and a Doctor of Musical Arts in conducting at the Peabody Conservatory. He attended the Aspen Music Festival as a Conducting Fellow.
Dr. Gaylin makes music with spirit and intellect, soul and rigor, a deep knowledge of world cultures, human nature, and the arts – that is, with his whole being. His approach to music, musicians, and life is rare; an old world commitment to the study and depth of conception, combined with a welcoming presence and warm engagement – both on and off the podium.
