The Lexington Philharmonic: The Power of Influence
MÉLISSE BRUNET, Music Director
The Power of Influence at the Lyric Theatre & Cultural Arts Center explores how artists are affected by external sources. With works by Mozart, Joseph Bologne – Chevalier de Saint-Georges, Igor Stravinsky and Lexington-born composer Shawn Okpebholo, each piece is in a direct dialogue with influences from the past and present. Additional pre-concert chamber music will occur in the Community Room preceding the performance in the hall.
