Marsalis's quartet and the Orion String Quartet were to appear together at Rose Hall this week, performing the world premiere of a new work by Marsalis. The concerts, scheduled for May 11, 12, and 13, have been postponed until September 20.
In a previous release, JALC said the new, six-movement work was "based upon the dance rhythms of choro, waltz, blues, bossa nova, habanera, and African 6/8." The Orion also collaborated with Marsalis in 1995, premiering and recording his quartet At the Octoroon Balls.
Marsalis is expected to return for JALC's spring gala concert on June 5 at the Apollo Theater.
