Flora, Fauns, & Beethoven 6
Take a walk on the wild side in a program inspired by the outdoors.

From beginning to end, the concert hall transforms into a field of lush flora and bright-eyed fauna. At its core is a walk on Beethoven’s less-wild side as we trek through the countryside in his Sixth Symphony – complete with bubbling streams and rolling thunderstorms! Debussy’s Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun envelopes you into a shimmering landscape of a sunny spring day and violinist Daniel Bae follows with a thrilling performance of Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto.
