    Nonesuch Events for the Weekend of January 10–12
    Alysse Gafkjen

    Yola, who kicked off her 2020 North American headlining tour in Boston and Brooklyn this week, brings music from her multiple Grammy-nominated debut album, Walk Through Fire, to the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC, tonight; World Café Live in Philadelphia on Saturday; and Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto on Sunday. The tour continues all month, including a performance at the MusiCares Person of the Year concert Grammy weekend.

    It was announced this week that Yola will perform the first taping of Austin City Limits' next season on February 4, to air this fall on PBS. She was a guest on NPR's On Point this week to discuss the banner year she has had since the release of Walk Through Fire ("a weekly update of life-changing news"); you can hear that conversation here.

    Composer John Adams’s 2014 piece Scheherazade.2 is performed by the Oregon Symphony, led by Alexander Liebreich, with violinist Leila Josefowicz, at Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall in Portland on Saturday and Sunday. The program also includes Ives’s The Unanswered Question and R. Strauss’s Also sprach Zarathustra.

    Nonesuch released the first recording of Scheherazade.2, performed by Josefowicz and the St. Louis Symphony led by David Robertson, in 2017. The “cinematic music goes a long way in unfolding a potent drama,” says NPR. “The fierceness and vulnerability Leila Josefowicz expresses contributes to an award-caliber performance.”

    Emmylou Harris joins Sheryl Crow, Jerry Douglas, Steve Earle, Buddy Miller, and Amy Ray at War Memorial Auditorium in Nashville on Saturday for The Lantern Tour II: Concerts for Migrant and Refugee Families. Proceeds from the concert go to the Women's Refugee Commission in support of families seeking safety at the US–Mexico border.

The program also includes Kahane’s Empire Liquor Mart, Steve Reich’s Different Trains, selections from Schumann’s Symphony No. 3, and more.

    Mandy Patinkin performs music from his 2019 album, Children and Art, and more at Mimi Ohio Theatre’s Playhouse Square in Cleveland on Saturday, accompanied by pianist Adam Ben David.

    Saxophonist Joshua Redman joins pianist Eric Legnini, drummer Antoine Pierre, and double bassist Or Bareket, for a performance at Flagey in Brussels, Belgium, tonight, as part of Brussels Jazz Festival.
