This concert will feature two beautifully emotional works by Ravel.  Le Tombeau de Couperin is a suite of short movements, each composed in loving memory of people who died in WWI, and Don Quichotte à Dulciné is a song cycle based on the  story of Don Quixote.   Popular favorites from The Marriage of Figaro, The Barber of Seville, and others we promise you’ll be humming on your way home will round out this program.  Don’t miss what’s certain to be a memorable night with Nathan Gunn as we bring our 40th Anniversary Season to a grand close.
