May 2021 - Music at the Museum

May 20-23, 2021

This program was inspired by the Lightner Museum's spring exhibition, entitled "St. Augustine in a New Light: American Impressionism from the Collection of the Lightner Museum"

The orchestra will perform selections composed contemporaneously to many of the works in the exhibition to provide some context outside the visual arts and hopefully shed more light on the masterworks on display. The orchestra has split into three performing groups with different repertoire as follows.
