100th Anniversary Performance

ASOriteofspringASOriteofspring Yes, this year is the 100th anniversary of the premier of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring. It caused riots during its first Paris performance in May of 1913. Fistfights broke out and the police were brought in to restore the peace. This weekend I expect less violence in the audience at the Auburn Performing Arts Center when we perform this piece with the Auburn Symphony Orchestra. Saturday night and Sunday matinee, April 27 and 28. Hope you'll come check out what all the fuss was about!
