Conductor Eric Jacobsen says goodbye to the Greater Bridgeport Symphony
Eric Jacobsen is completing his final season with the Greater Bridgeport Symphony. Today on Where We Live, we talk to Eric about his work as a conductor, and we’ll also hear about the search for the next Greater Bridgeport Symphony conductor.
The performing art took a huge financial hit during the pandemic, but the Greater Bridgeport Symphony found a way to gather and perform during this time.
We hear about its commitment to serving the Greater Bridgeport community and its work to get the children interested in classical music.
