Even at the start, the orchestra came on brilliantly with Jan Bach's lively and engaging "Escapade." It was a midwestern premiere for this fascinating contemporary work, which was a little jazzy at times, sounding somewhat like Gershwin but thematically more profound. It may be light in its overall effect, but it is dramatically satisfying, festive and most engaging in this exuberant performance.
