About the Concert

An evening of French favorites and dazzling performances by the winners of our Young Artist Competition! Whether it’s Goethe’s lazy young musician or Mallarmé’s curious faun, poetry inspired Dukas and Debussy to create two of the most beloved pieces in classical music. Ravel’s Bolero is the quintessential orchestral showpiece and his marvelous ballet brings over 100 musicians to the stage in a rich and triumphant conclusion to our 40th Anniversary!
