Join the Colorado Springs Philharmonic for the El Pomar Masterworks season finale, Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring. Originally a controversial ballet, the piece has since been called transformational. Additionally, the concert opens with two pieces by Johann Sebastian Bach. First, Toccata and Fugue as arranged by Leopold Stokowski, followed by Violin Concerto No. 2 featuring Michael Hanson, concert master.
