“This concerto is called ‘Reflections on the Mississippi.’ It’s based on the Mississippi River and it sort of takes you on a trip down the river, so the movements have titles that are reminiscent of the river. It’s very evocative of the American landscape and really melodic,” Jantsch said.READ MORE: 'I Thought I Was Done': Residents Of Trevose Mobile Home Park Pick Up The Pieces After EF-3 Tornado
She also explained why the concerto is special.
“Tuba concertos are pretty rare; this is, in fact, the first tuba concerto that the Orchestra has done in its entire 116-year history. So it’s kind of a big deal for our instrument and the Orchestra in general.”MORE NEWS: Pirates' Crowe, 2 Relievers 1-Hit Phillies, End 4-Game Skid
