Among the works that expand the diversity of the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra's programming this season are a pair of compositions by Joseph Bologne Chevalier de Saint-Georges, an 18th-century violinist and swordsman of French and African descent. Conductor Nicholas McGegan will lead the orchestra in the works, and two by his near contemporary, Beethoven, next weekend. A Tempo this Saturday (10/9 at 7 pm) features a conversation with McGegan about his interest in de Saint-Georges' musical output, which included symphonies, concertos and operas, as well as a conversation with NJSO President and CEO Gabriel van Aalst.
