Debussy’s La mer
Allow yourself to answer the siren call of the sea with music that is so realistic you’ll want to ask for a life vest.
Concert highlights include:
The New Year begins with the first of many celebrations of the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth.
Experience the tides and temperaments of the mighty ocean with Debussy’s nearly literal depiction of moving water in La mer.
Associate Concertmaster Kathryn Eberle returns as featured soloist on Edgar Meyer’s earthy and warm-hearted Violin Concerto.
Listen as Associate Conductor Conner Gray Covington makes his Masterworks debut with a program that features the Utah premiere of Arlene Sierra’s nervously energetic Moler.
