New Century Chamber Orchestra concludes its 2017-2018 season with the historic West Coast Premiere of Philip Glass's Piano Concerto No. 3 featuring international soloist Simone Dinnerstein. 

As part of the nationwide celebrations of the composer's 80th birthday, New Century joined a consortium of orchestras that commissioned Philip Glass to write his first piano concerto in 13 years. A renowned Bach interpreter, Dinnerstein will present this new work alongside J.S. Bach's Keyboard Concerto No. 3 in G minor. 

Indianapolis Symphony concertmaster Zachary DePue appears as Guest Concertmaster in a program that also features string orchestra works by Henry Purcell, Francesco Geminiani and Bryce Dessner.
