Debussy // La Mer Listen Now
Ravel // La Valse Listen Now

Waves of sound crash through the hall during Debussy's La Mer in this concert presented in partnership with the Baltimore Museum of Art. Ravel describes the “whirling” patterns of La Valse as, “Swirling clouds afford glimpses, through rifts, of waltzing couples.” Yet this waltz may have a darker side: a world war, the death of a loved one and a ballet never danced. Discover many influences of these impressionist masterworks. Join us after the concert for a conductor-led Q&A session.

*The Saturday, January 13 performance will be followed by a 'Ravel on the Rocks' after-party featuring live music from Orchester Prazevica, food specials from Dooby's and $6 gin specials!
