About the Program:
With Paula Robison as narrator, this concert features Sooyun Kim and Sungwoo Kim, flutes; Franziska Huhn and Krysten Keches, harps; and Tae Kim, piano and celesta. The program will include the ageless Histoire de Babar, le petit éléphant by Jean de Brunhoff with Francis Poulenc’s delightful music, Dialogue of the Young Ishmaelites from L’Enfance du Christ by Hector Berlioz, and the original version of Claude Debussy’s Bilitis, written for a staged presentation of Pierre Loüys’ sensuous and evocative poetry.
