MSO Patron Service Manager Michael Harp said more than 800 tickets were sold for each performance.

Jonnes added that the collaboration marked the third event of the MSO season featuring a world premiere.

"It's very exciting," Jonnes said. "It's been great working with these extraordinary musicians. We've had great fun working with them. They've loved working with (MSO Music Director) Elizabeth (Schulze) and the orchestra, and it's a fabulous program."

The Rodney Marsalis Philadelphia Big Brass is looking forward to sharing many new and exciting programs with audiences from coast to coast. The group kicks off the 2015/2016 season with a concert near Philadelphia followed by a tour to Italy, Austria, Croatia, and England.
