The Lexington Philharmonic will play the music portion of The Legend of the Northern Lights, an event that combines the music of Christopher Theofanidis and footage of the aurora borealis.
"The magic of the Northern Lights illuminates the Singletary Center skies in Finlandia & The Northern Lights! Grammy-nominated composer Christopher Theofanidis blends score, film, and narration into The Legend of the Northern Lights. Described by the Chicago Tribune as a “seamless fusion of science and fantasy,” the work features awe-inspiring visuals of the aurora borealis by astronomer Dr. José Francisco Salgado with a lush score by Theofanidis. Sibelius’ ode to his homeland, Finlandia, and his Symphony No. 1 complete an evening exploration of the sights and sounds of the vast north."
