About the Event
Spring is a time of new beginnings and rejuvenation, and what better way to celebrate it than by combining two of the most inspiring and uplifting experiences - music and nature?
As the world awakens from its winter slumber, it's the perfect time to take a step back, unplug from our screens, and connect with the beauty that surrounds us. Spring provides the best opportunity to let your creativity flow and appreciate the beauty of nature through sounds and music.
Composers throughout history have been inspired by spring to write some unforgettable music. Pianist Dagmar Kilian and soprano Jennifer Rasor have chosen some of their favourites to underscore the annual grand awakening of the earth.
Ticket sales for this concert will begin on February 21, 2024.
