Outside the Bachs:
Water Music

The LPO celebrates the water-filled world of Louisiana with this concert featuring aquatic works by composers from past and present!  Bach’s Overture to Suite No. 1 begins the program, followed by Françaix’s “The Flower Clock” for oboe and orchestra, featuring LPO Principal Oboist Jaren Atherholt. Next, Ibert’s light and humorous Divertissement serves as a prelude to two very different takes on water music: Handel’s famous suite, followed by the LPO’s newly-commissioned work by UNO Resident Composer Yotam Haber: New Water Music

NEW FOR 2016! The LPO redesigns the Outside the Bachs series for the Orpheum Theater. Experience these performances in unique ways with creative and dynamic performance and seating configurations.
