Off The Cuff: Rite of Spring
Marin Alsop, Music Director
A piece of music that is so wild, so barbaric and yet so brilliant that it incited a riot, Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring is terrifying, beautiful and awe-inspiring. Inspired by folksongs with roots of pagan times, the composer pushed the boundaries of classical instruments to evoke earthy and bestial sounds. Join Marin Alsop and explore Stravinsky's galvanizing masterpiece. Join us after the concert for a conductor-led Q&A session.
*The Saturday, February 24 performance will be followed by a ‘Single Malt Stravinsky’ after-party featuring live music from Elon, food specials from The Local Oyster and $6 whiskey specials!
