program description

Emmanuel Ceysson, French harp throb joins eight Classical Tahoe musicians to make magic.

A buoyant, airy and charming Serenade – composed to be heard outdoors – leads to a walk on the wild side with Sacred and Earthly dances, while the harp recounts the story of the Faust character, and a sun-filled Trio with french horn brings us back home, grounding us in nature and the beautiful Black Forest.
