Music will include Stravinsky’s arrangement of the Star Spangled Banner, the opening chorus of John Adams’ opera Doctor Atomic, Francis Poulenc’s Un Soir de Neige, Benjamin Britten’s Holy Sonnets of John Donne featuring tenor soloist Jason Wickson, Ligeti’s Lux Aeterna from Stanley Kubrick's 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey, and more.
