Once Upon a Time: The DMO Winter 2017 Concert
Sunday, December 10, 2017 - 3:00pm
This winter, the DMO explores the storytelling power of music. From Leonard Bernstein's West Side Story to Aaron Copland's Billy the Kid, every piece on our program leads the audience through narratives that explore the full range of human emotion, experience, and imagination. Hear old favorites like Mussorgsky's Night on Bald Mountain and Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries. Experience new works, including the world premiere of a DMO commission - The Orchestra Pit, based on a children's book by Johanna Wright (https://johannawright.com/books/) about a snake that loses its way and finds itself in the wrong pit.The DMO is happy to be able to offer concerts to the greater Durham community for no charge. Please arrive early to find parking on or near Duke's East Campus. See the Baldwin Auditorium information page (https://dukeperformances.duke.edu/venues/baldwin-auditorium) for parking advice and directions.
