Upcoming Events

Educate Your Ear
Learning to Compose:
Stravinsky's Symphony in E-flat, Op. 1

Friday, October 6, 2017 at 7 pm,
in the James A. Little Theater
at the New Mexico School for the Deaf.

Before the famous ballets and operas, Stravinsky cut his teeth on a great, mostly traditional symphony that is so melodic and expressive, you'll wonder who composed it. Oliver's engaging, informative commentary
and musical illustrations by the SFCO will be followed by a complete performance
of the first movement.

Educate Your Ear—it will change
the way you hear!

Free Admission, Donations Appreciated
