The Lock-In: La Boulangerie

December 14, 2019 @ 9:15 pm


Perhaps the most influential woman of 20th-century music, Nadia Boulanger is an icon in the story of classical music, having taught an impressive list of musical titans such as Aaron Copland, Elliott Carter, Philip Glass, Astor Piazzolla, Thea Musgrave, Burt Bacharach, Quincy Jones, and her gifted sister Lili Boulanger. In this Lock-In, Aurora Players curate a night inspired by Boulanger’s legendary salons, a hub for creative minds in 20th-century Paris.

As the lights go down in Hall One, we move across to Hall Two to grab a drink and settle in for a revelatory late-night series. Curated by Aurora Principal Players, each intimate and informal performance takes you on a journey of musical discovery across diverse genres and art forms. Expect eclectic musical encounters that unfold in new and surprising ways, from entering otherworldly dimensions in electronic music to learning the steps to a rip-roaring hoedown to meeting a pterodactyl in the most unlikely of circumstances.
