Don’t miss American composer Lee Hoiby’s hilarious staged portrait of Julia Child, Bon Appétit! The Dorian Wind Quintet (“One of chamber music’s most sparkling and eloquent ensembles,” TIME Magazine) joins soprano Abigail Fischer (“without equal in her generation…,” New York Times) to enact an episode of Child’s famous cooking show, “How to Bake a Chocolate Cake” – flour and all. Fischer also sings Leonard Bernstein’s cheeky recipe song cycle, La bonne cuisine, and the Dorian’s perform Samuel Barber’s Summer Music in this all-American program.
