Welcome the spring with our March event featuring Pianist Ian Scarfe as he explores the life and times of Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel -- two pioneering figures of 20th Century music, and the two most often associated with the French Impressionism movement in music. Scarfe leads the audience through a program featuring some of their most colorful and memorable works for piano, including Claude Debussy's Preludes and Suite Bergamasque, and Maurice Ravel's Sonatine and Piano Suite Le Tombeau de Couperin.
