About the Concert

Six-time Grammy winner Michael Daugherty’s Valley of the Moon highlights our beautiful and ecologically diverse county. Piercing beauty rises from the violin of Finnish virtuoso Elina Vähälä, like birds soaring to the treetops or a butterfly softly lighting in Korngold's romantic Violin Concerto, with delightful nods to his exquisite film scores. Strauss' irresistible Overture to Die Fledermaus and Debussy's pastoral Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun perfectly complement this tender and triumphant season finale.


Conversations with Francesco Lecce-Chong

Concert Conversations are general seating and free to Classical Series concert ticket holders. Approximately 30 minutes in Weill Hall.
