Miguel Harth-Bedoya leads the Shepherd School Chamber Orchestra in a program spotlighting music that takes its cue from a specific time and place. Named after a grand estate in Washington, D.C., Dumbarton Oaks blends Stravinsky’s inventive, boundary-pushing sound with a nod to one of the greatest masters of the past, J.S. Bach. Elegía Andina, composed by Shepherd School alumna Gabriela Lena Frank, celebrates her multicultural heritage and draws in stylistic elements of Peruvian panpipes. Based on a 17th century French satire about a pompous social climber, Strauss’s Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme fizzes with lively antics and whimsical charm.
