Lakes Area Music Festival: Tribute to the Earth

Saturday, August 21
Show | 7:30pm

The “Pago a la Tierra” (tribute to the earth) is an ancient Andean ritual of thanksgiving for nature’s bounty. In this spirit, the Lakes Area Music Festival closes its season with a celebration of the gifts we have all enjoyed. A world premier by Peruvian-American composer Jimmy López is followed by the Second Symphony of Jean Sibelius, a work inspired by the Apennine mountains of Italy.
