Usher in Valentine’s Day with a sparkling and evocative all-French program, led by renowned French conductor Fabien Gabel. Premiered in September, 2020, Camille Pépin’s spellbinding Avant les clartés de l’aurore evokes the magical moments before dawn’s light. Tomasi’s blazing and theatrical Fanfares liturgiques spotlights the Symphony’s powerhouse brass section, and the concerts close with the effervescence and lighthearted charm of Poulenc’s Sinfonietta.

Before the concert: Musical Ambassador Carlos Andrés Botero hosts Prelude discussion live on Zoom. Ticket holders get a link to learn more about the musicians and the night’s repertoire.
