Stravinsky | Sibelius | Adams | Skye world premiere

Our opening concert tells a story of rebirth and communal renewal: from Morton Gould’s Protest, and a World Premiere commission of As Water, Freedom by Derrick Skye (Spiva); to Sibelius and John Adams at 75. The concert concludes with Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite, a timeless work celebrating collective reemergence and renewal.
