Olivier Marger and Julian Schack

This year, The Tanglewood Music Center has three Fellows from the Mendelssohn Academy in Leipzig, Germany as an exchange that’s part of the BSO’s alliance with the Gewandhaus Orchestra. It’s the first-ever Musician Exchange Program between Tanglewood and Leipzig's acclaimed Music Academy programs.

This morning we welcome two of those three. They’re both playing in the Leonard Bernstein Memorial Concert Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra performance with Andris Nelsons and Yo-Yo Ma on Sunday in The Shed at 2:30 PM.

Cellist Olivier Marger will perform in all four pieces and Julian Schack on horn will perform during the Copland, Williams, and Bartok pieces.
