La Jolla Symphony & Chorus's yearlong survey of Stravinsky continues with a program inspired by the many faces of spring. Grieg's beautiful lament for string orchestra (The Last Spring) is a perfect introduction to Schumann's robust 'Spring' symphony (Symphony No. 1 in B-flat Major). Chorus and soloists join the orchestra for quite a different Spring Symphony, Benjamin Britten's setting of fourteen poems about the coming of spring, a preview of the chorus's upcoming Carnegie Hall debut. Guest artist: tenor Jon Lee Keenan. Conducted by David Chase.
