ALL-STAR ORCHESTRA delivers "masterpieces for the masses," helping viewers enjoy, explore and experience the celebrated classical music of Beethoven, Stravinsky, Dvorak, Shostakovich, Tchaikovsky, Schumann and Mahler. The educational and entertaining four-part series features the world-class talents of the All-Star Orchestra, an ensemble comprised of top players who gather annually for a one-week performance "summit." Each one-hour episode pairs the All-Star Orchestra's performance of a popular symphonic score with a new work by a contemporary American composer. These inspiring, all-ages concerts, filmed with multiple cameras in New York's historic The Grand at Manhattan Center, are supplemented with illuminating interviews with the conductor, musicians, composers and special guests.
