Classical music has gotten a bad rap. Shushing, rustling candy wrappers, stuck in a row of uncomfortable chairs trying not to fall asleep while waiting for intermission to cough or use the bathroom. Forget all of it. That’s not how music was meant to be performed, so we’re not gonna do it. Get up, get a drink, whatever you want. Cough, slurp, chat as much as you please.
More importantly, enjoy yourself & some amazing music with us at DiMenna Center.
THANKS! Stefanie – Aleksandra – Jessica
LES SIX –
Les Six was a group of young French composers consisting of Georges Auric, Louis Durey, Arthur Honegger, Darius Milhaud, Francis Poulenc & Germaine Tailleferre, brought together by Erik Satie & Jean Cocteau at the end of the First World War, which achieved international fame in the 1920’s. A unique collaboration that has never been matched in classical music, with Cocteau as their spokesman, the group was a phenomenon born out of the shock of the German invasion of France in 1914 – an avant-garde riposte to the impressionism of composers such as Claude Debussy & Maurice Ravel & the romanticism of Richard Wagner & Richard Strauss.
