The final concert of the season features three works full of vigor and rhythmic energy. The evening begins with Márquez’s Danzón No. 2, a colorful work inspired by the sultry rhythms of Mexico’s Gulf Coast. Next, rising star violinist Simone Porter brings impassioned energy for Saint-Saens’ virtuosic Violin Concerto No. 3. The evening reaches its pinnacle with a performance of one of the most powerful pieces of orchestral music ever written: Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring. Nearly one hundred musicians unite to take the audience on an unforgettable and electrifying musical journey in this rare performance.
