Strauss: "Dance of the Seven Veils" from Salome, Op. 54
Rachmaninoff: Symphonic Dances, Op. 45
Stravinsky: Le Sacre du printemps (The Rite of Spring)

The Curtis Symphony Orchestra celebrates the centenary of Stravinsky's Le Sacre du printemps (Rite of Spring) and embarks on a new all-school project, Russia: A Land and its Influence. Alumnus Michael Stern leads a program anchored by the ballet score that provoked Parisian audiences in 1913 and still sounds fresh, invigorating, and revolutionary today. Conducting fellow Kensho Watanabe is also featured.
