Join us for an intimate chamber orchestra performance celebrating the beauty of French music. Our program features Fauré’s delightfully delicate Pavane, as well as Ravel’s stunning orchestral arrangements of Debussy’s Sarabande and Danse. We are delighted that mezzo-soprano Magdalena Wòr will join us for Berlioz’s Les Nuits d’Été. Her voice and musicianship have exactly the kind of dusky warmth needed for a song cycle that follows the course of love: from youthful innocence, to loss and finally renewal. The concert will take a turn towards the surreal with Milhaud’s Le boeuf sur le toit, which portrays a motley crew of characters who frequent a Brazilian bar. Conducted by Victoria Gau
