Music & Monet

Presented by Ligature Creative

Claude Monet disrupted the art world when he introduced Impressionism at the end of the 19th century. October 4, step into the lush musical landscape inspired by the master’s luminous artistic style. The concert dawns with Lili Boulanger’s One Spring Morning then rises onto Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun by Claude Debussy. Pianist Stephanie Cheng shines on Maurice Ravel’s jazzy piano concerto before the sun sets on Debussy’s stormy La Mer. The night ends with Ravel’s hypnotic crowd-pleaser, Boléro, for a thrilling finale!

Show me the Monet!

Presented in partnership with the Denver Art Museum’s Claude Monet: The Truth of Nature exhibit, impressionistic works by the famed painter will be projected above the orchestra throughout the performance for an immersive sensory experience.

Calling all young artists!

Submit your Monet-inspired work for consideration to be shown at the concert and on the Denver Art Museum’s website!
