- The piece: Tantalizingly brief, Ravel’s “ballet for orchestra” has achieved notoriety for many reasons, from its sustained crescendo—one of the longest in any orchestral piece—to its deceptively simple repetitions. Another claim to fame: as an unlikely pop hit in 1980, thanks to a rather risqué appearance in Bo Derek film 10.
- The conductor: Emmy-nominated composer and conductor Benjamin Wallfisch
- The star soloist: Cécilia Tsan, Long Beach Symphony’s principal cellist
- Get there early if you’d like a little inside info. There’s a pre-concert talk with Wallfisch and KUSC radio host Rich Capparela at 7 p.m., and all ticket holders are welcome.
Long Beach Symphony
A community institution for over 80 years, the Long Beach Symphony has entertained generations of audiences. The Symphony produces six full symphonic classical concerts throughout the year at the Long Beach Performing Arts Center Terrace Theater and five more eclectic POPS! concert events in the Long Beach Arena, entertaining more than 32,000 residents throughout the season. Outside of their concert events, the Symphony also provides over 24,000 local school children with access to music at their schools, libraries, and community centers, as well as ensembles and concert field trips for every LBUSD 2nd-5th grader in the public school system. Because music should be above all things accessible, Long Beach Symphony also offers free concerts at smaller venues and fun instrument petting zoos in spaces all over the City of Long Beach, like Cesar Chavez Park, Rainbow Harbor Lagoon, City Parking Garage, and Homeland Cultural Center.
