About This Performance

Join us for a performance of the music from Stravinsky's infamous ballet The Rite of Spring. Considered scandalous at the time of its 1913 premiere in Paris, it is now considered one of the most magnificent musical masterpieces of the 20th century. Principal harpist Gretchen Van Hoesen will delight with a sparkling performance of Ginastera's Concerto for Harp and Orchestra, and the symphony premieres Edú Lobo's foot tapping Suite Popular Brasileira.
