Boise Philharmonic: Chamber 360°

Saturday, Feb. 20


Between the end of the age of classical music in the mid-19th century and the birth of jazz in the early 20th century, the western world was transfixed by cultural, artistic and scientific modernism. The music of Darius Milhaud, Rene Jacques Ibert and Charles-Edouard Lefebvre features elements of both jazz and classical music with long, sweeping songs that feel like the soundtracks to movies that have never been made. Catch the Boise Philharmonic Woodwind Quintet as it performs Milhaud's La cheminee du roi, Ibert's Three Short Pieces and Lefebvre's Suite No. 1, Op. 57 at 11 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 20, at the acoustically magnificent St. Michael's Episcopal Cathedral as part of Boise Philharmonic's Chamber 360 series.
