Musical director Barry Silverman conducts South Coast Symphony’s musical tour of the Impressionist era in France, with stops at works from three landmark artists: Dukas, Ravel, and Debussy. Responding to the ornate gaudiness of the Romantic period, these emotive composers coupled gently dissonant chords with quiet, driving rhythms, resulting in such masterworks as Debussy’s moon-kissed lullaby Clair de Lune and Dukas’s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. Inspired by Goethe’s poem of the same name and in turn scoring a famed segment in Walt Disney’s Fantasia, the latter’s rising prelude of violins fades into a well-known march of clarinet and bassoon, sonically chronicling a wizard’s assistant who loses control of the broom he enchanted. Ravel is perhaps best known for his syncopated Bolero, whose constant shifting of instruments is anchored by a military snare drum theme that bravely soldiers on like a half-eaten parade of gingerbread men. A part of the self-proclaimed Unstuffy Symphony’s Greatest Hits series, this orchestral evening is suited for lifelong fans of classical music and first-timers alike.

South Coast Symphony

The South Coast Symphony bills itself as "the unstuffy symphony." Which isn't to say that its pro musicians have any disrespect for the classical tradition—any given season likely will be rich with mammoth orchestral works and famous operas. But the group has broad tastes, and accordingly partners with a wide range of musicians to put on evenings of Broadway show tunes, renditions of classic-rock albums, and film-score performances. Many of the concerts are designed to be welcoming to a wide audience, including kids or adults who have never listened to anything besides CDs of funny sound effects.
