Haydn Voyages

Dancing in the Orange Groves

February 9, 2020 at 4 PM  |  Maritime Museum of San Diego

The season opens with an evocative mix of music, pairing two Haydn masterpieces with works  suggestive of our own time and place. Terry Riley’s Good Medicine Dance is the final segment of his epic Salome Dances for Peace, which updates the legend of Salome to today (or at least to 1987).  Caroline Shaw’s Valencia is an ode to the common supermarket orange, but also in the composer’s words “a kind of celebration of awareness of the natural, unadorned food that is still available to us.”  Join us for this Californian adventure!
