Event Description

12 OCT 2019 :: Water – the essential element of life – is explored in this vivid program featuring six members of The Percussion Collective. From the mythological sea nymphs of The Oceanides to Seaborne, a work by a Grammy-Award winning composer with percussion solos presented with a breathtaking film by Kjell van Sice, this program offers an expansive look at music depicting bodies of water.

Become River flows through the orchestra with an innovative stage setting and the performance closes with the magnificent La mer by French composer Claude Debussy.
