STRAVINSKY: The Rite of Spring

This third concert in our Family series features the Colburn Orchestra, Anaheim Ballet, and a guest host exploring the concepts of rhythm, music and dance and their unity on stage through movement—all in a friendly, family focused one-hour program.

Since its infamous premiere more than 100 years ago, Igor Stravinsky’s seminal ballet score The Rite of Spring dramatically changed the landscape of music and solidified its place as one of classical music’s greatest hits.

Founded in 2003, the Colburn Conservatory of Music has established a record of producing musicians that find success in the highly-competitive classical music world. The conservatory’s flagship ensemble is the Colburn Orchestra, led by Music Director Yehuda Gilad. It performs concerts annually in premiere venues throughout Greater Los Angeles, such as Ambassador Auditorium, Walt Disney Concert Hall, Segerstrom Center for the Arts, the Broad Stage, the Younes and Soraya Nazarian Center for the Performing Arts, and Musco Center for the Arts.

Anaheim Ballet is a premier Southern California arts organization and the resident ballet company of the City of Anaheim with five distinct components: a professional performing company, a ‘Virtual Theater” media presence, an international dance festival, a school, and an educational outreach program for underserved youth. They present concert performances throughout Southern California and on tour. The company also performs for thousand of students annually at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts, the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts and at public schools throughout Los Angeles, Riverside and Orange counties.
