John Estacio: Aurora Triptych
Claude Debussy: La Mer

Explore and revel in one of the most beautiful naturally occurring wonders of the world – the Aurora Borealis – as the Orchestra performs Aurora Triptych by John Estacio, accompanied by a live film featuring inspiring and breathtaking images and video of the Northern Lights as curated by award-winning astronomer, Dr. José Francisco Salgado. The second half of the program features Debussy’s impressionistic and powerfully elegant tribute to the majesty of the sea, La Mer.

KIDS ACTIVITIES / Explore the wonders of science and sound! Children ages 6-12 who attend the first half of the concert are invited to explore the Aurora Borealis further with our education team during the second half in our latest IFF & DuPont STEM exhibit, At the Speed of Light!
