C3: Community / Bolero

Experience Ravel’s Bolero like never before, paired with a music video featuring Eugene Symphony musicians playing in iconic locations around Eugene.


May 19, 2022 7:30 PM

C3: Community / Bolero

R. Strauss: Don Quixote

Elgar: "Enigma" Variations

Ravel: Bolero

To continue our C3 exploration of how music inspires creativity, connection, and community, we hear two depictions of true friendship — first, in Richard Strauss’s setting of Cervantes’ epic tale of an errant knight and his trusty sidekick, and then in Edward Elgar’s inspiring series of musical portraits honoring his family and friends. Then, we end with one of music’s most enduring and beguiling melodies, Maurice Ravel’s Bolero, complete with a video of our own Eugene Symphony musicians playing their instruments all across our beloved hometown.

Program subject to change.
