After a long, hard, weird year, we’re buzzing back into action. Our friends at Stanley Marketplace have invited us to return for another concert series on The Field, May 26 & 27. DPO Music Director Lawrence Golan leaps back onto the podium to conduct four works budding with joy and optimism!
First up is Gioachino Rossini’s playful and cartoonish overture to The Barber of Seville. Then, emerging from the loneliness of a dark cave into the bright light of day, Felix Mendelssohn’s lyrical Hebrides couldn’t be a more apt metaphor as we collectively rise from the trauma of the pandemic. Elegía Andina by composer (and beekeeper!) Gabriela Lena Frank will transport you on a musical, Peruvian adventure. And finally, Ludwig van Beethoven’s magnificent seventh symphony offers us a glimpse into his continued positivity despite his increasing hearing loss.
Make it a Picnic!
Bring a blanket or your well-loved camping chairs and make yourself comfortable for the concert. Arrive early or hang out after to enjoy a picnic in the field — Stanley Marketplace has 20 food and beverage vendors so everyone in your party will be satisfied. Plan your evening at Stanley.
