Boise Philharmonic: The Sea

Saturday, Nov. 10, The Morrison Center

by

According to Google Maps, Boise is about 552 miles from the nearest coast—but thanks to the Boise Philharmonic, music buffs will soon be able to experience the sound of the sea without leaving town, or even going outdoors. On Saturday, Nov. 10, the Phil will offer a performance called The Sea, which stars two compositions that attempt to capture the ocean: Benjamin Britten's "Four Sea Interludes" from Peter Grimes, which portrays the waves in four different moods; and Claude Debussy's "La Mer," which looks at what The Phil calls "the luminous and atmospheric mysteries of the sea." The night will end with Edward Elgar's "Enigma Variations." If you miss the show, don't worry—just catch it at the NNU Brandt Center in Nampa the next day.
