The Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra has played contemporary music on their concerts alongside older classics before -- but this weekend’s concert is the first time that the whole program is dedicated to the work of living composers.

Leila Josefowicz is the violin soloist for the RPO's concert this weekend. She says that she no longer plays the older classics and wants to work with music that is "more unexpected, more edgy, more contemporary."
