WRTI's Gregg Whiteside is once again traveling across the globe with The Philadelphia Orchestra—this year, on their tour of Europe and Israel with Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin. WRTI 90.1 will broadcast and stream four concerts from the tour. 

Four Philadelphia Orchestra brass players routinely sit together in the back of the orchestra. But for a new work by Jennifer Higdon, they all move to the front of the stage—as soloists and chamber musicians. WRTI’s Susan Lewis talked with the quartet and composer about the surprising sounds we don't often hear from the low brass.
