Our 2015–2016 season features a bold tribute to the great impresario Sergei Diaghilev; Holiday POPS! concerts and a Music from the Movies event for all ages; classics by Mendelssohn and Dello Joio; and the biggest orchestra and cast of singers in Cary Hall history, who will take the stage to present THE ESSENTIAL RING, Part 1 — a selection of the greatest music from Richard Wagner’s Ring Cycle.
2015–2016 SEASON OPENER
Tribute to Sergei Diaghilev and Ballets Russes
November 7, 2015
Saturday, 8 p.m.
Lexington Symphony launches its 2015–2016 season with an imaginative program that pays homage to iconic Russian artistic visionary Sergei Diaghilev. Eric Satie’s Parade blends a panoply of sounds such as roulette wheels, boat whistles, typewriters, guns, and sirens with the orchestra. Add to this two of McPhee’s favorites by Stravinsky, Petrushka and The Rite of Spring, and you have one unforgettable evening of truly great music that changed the course of artistic history.
