Spectacle qui nous donnerait bien envie de traverser l'Atlantique.
Ars Lyrica Houston presents the Artful Women season finale with A Day with Marie Antoinette on Saturday, May 19th at 7:30 pm in Zilkha Hall at the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts. The musical program will conjure up an artful day chez France's most famous queen, from intimate morning music lessons to a spectacular evening concert. By turns rustic and elegant, this program offers a violin concerto by Marie Antoinette's music teacher Joseph Bologne (the Chevalier de Saint-Georges), a Mozart flute quartet, a dance suite from Gluck's Orphée et Eurydice, and Haydn's "Paris" Symphony No. 85, subtitled "The Queen."
Artful Women honorees include some of the most impactful mothers that support the arts not only philanthropically but through their dedicated efforts to instill a passion for the arts in the next generation. May Mothers honorees include Sonja Bruzauskas, Cecilia Duarte, Rachel Ellsworth, Sara Loperena, Dominique McCormick, Yvonnamor Palix, Ishwaria M. Subbiah, and Connie Kwan-Wong. Soloist: Cynthia Roberts, violin
