Join us for an evening of collaboration of art and music.

Few great works of music have taken so long to get to a finished product as Brahms’ Symphony No. 1. He insisted that it took 21 years from sketches to finishing touches. It’s monumental!

The first masterpiece by composer Manuel De Falla, Master Peter’s Puppet Show is a puppet-opera in one act, with puppets and real characters adapted from one of the episodes of Don Quixote. Visual Artist Kevork Mourad shares the stage with your Orlando Philharmonic with his technique of spontaneous real-time animated painting.
