HLB Nightclub at Highline Ballroom - Highline Ballroom
March 02, 2013 - Manhattan

Jason Aldean - Madison Square Garden
March 02, 2013 - New York

Aldean has consistently forged new directions since he rose to national prominence with his 2006 debut, "Hicktown." That song's power chords -- and his penchant for throwing a Guns N' Roses medley into his early concerts -- demonstrated his willingness to challenge the accepted boundaries of the country genre. Some of his subsequent hits -- particularly the farm-themed "Amarillo Sky," the pleading ballad "The Truth" and the million-selling sing-along "Big Green Tractor" -- cemented his country cred, in turn allowing him even more leeway for experimentation. "She's Country" adopted an in-your-face, AC/DC vibe. "Dirt Road Anthem" introduced Southern rap into mainstream country. And the Clarkson duet, "Don't You Wanna Stay," added a pop sheen to his career that hadn't been obvious before.

Jennifer Koh - 92nd Street Y
March 02, 2013 - New York

Violinist Jennifer Koh is recognized for her intense, commanding performances, delivered with dazzling virtuosity and technical assurance. With an impassioned musical curiosity, she is forging an artistic path of her own devising, choosing works that both inspire and challenge. She is dedicated to performing the violin repertoire of all eras from traditional to contemporary, believing that the past and present form a continuum. The exploration of Bach's music and its influence in today's musical landscape has played an important role in Ms. Koh's artistic journey. In 2009, she debuted Bach and Beyond, a series of three recitals that explore the history of the solo violin repertoire from Bach's Six Sonatas and Partitas to modern day composers including newly commissioned works. During the 2012-13 season, Ms. Koh performs the second recital in the series, Bach and Beyond Part II, which connects Bach's Sonata No. 1 and Partita No. 1 to Bartok's Sonata for solo violin and Phil Kline's Partita for solo violin.
