Take flight through a mesmerizing symphonic journey where color, light, and soulful melodies intertwine.

Let the celestial phenomenon of the Northern Lights come to life through Jimmy López Bellido's enchanting West Coast premiere of his Aurora Violin Concerto, featuring the virtuosity of Leticia Moreno. Immerse yourself in the striking spectacle of Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition, vividly depicting Viktor Hartmann's paintings, orchestrated by Ravel. Prepare for a transcendent fusion of sight and sound, as music paints a colorful landscape that will leave you spellbound.
