The season begins in France as we pay tribute to Francis Poulenc. The centerpiece of this performance will be his exuberantly beautiful Gloria. We'll also feature his Concerto for Organ, Strings, and Timpani in G Minor, a work of profound beauty that opens with a thunderously Gothic, Bach-like andante flourish. You won't want to miss it!
