CSO Music Director Jean-Marie Zeitouni will lead the Columbus Symphony in a celebration of orchestral virtuosity with an unmistakable French accent and allure, featuring guest mezzo-soprano Jennifer Rivera and the Columbus Symphony Chorus.
The program includes Debussy’s Prélude a I’Après-midi d’un faune (Prelude to "The Afternoon of a Faun"), Fauré’s Pavane, excerpts from Chausson’s Poeme de l’amour et de la mer for Voice and Orchestra, Ravel’s Suite No. 2 from Daphnis et Chloe, and Duruflé’s Requiem.
WOSU’s Christopher Purdy will hold a free, pre-concert lecture about the program for ticket holders at 7pm each night on the fourth floor of the Ohio Theatre’s Galbreath Pavilion.
