Make It a Date, All Month Long

The day of arrow-wielding cherubs, rose bouquets, and chocolate-filled hearts is upon us. But why should the romance and special outings be limited to February 14? This month, press pause on your winter hibernation routine and step out for a dazzling array of passion-filled concerts that make any night date night for you and your valentine.

The Ultimate Romance

For the die-hard romantics, it’s hard to beat the timeless love story of Sergei Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet, February 17–19. This radiant ballet music depicts the fierce feud of Shakespeare's Montagues and Capulets, and, of course, the unbreakable bond of the star-crossed lovers. Conducted by Esa-Pekka Salonen, the program rounds out with an ode to the sparkling French music of bygone eras in Maurice Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin, and the unapologetic fun of Béla Bartók’s dance-filled Second Piano Concerto, performed by Pierre-Laurent Aimard.

A Surprise Adventure

For thrill seekers wanting a date night that’s a little more mysterious, the Symphony's SoundBox space is the place for you. Grab a craft cocktail at the bar and get cozy for these one-of-a-kind experiences.

First, lose yourself in expansive Nordic soundscapes as violinist, conductor, and Collaborative Partner Pekka Kuusisto joins forces with leading Swedish composer/inventor/developer Jesper Nordin for SoundBox: Convergence, February 10–11. Next, journey through a mystical tale of a mythological trickster with Collaborative Partner and flutist Claire Chase in Claire Chase: Pan, February 24. The excitement continues on March 4 as multifaceted composer and Collaborative Partner Nico Muhly curates SoundBox: Codes, a mesmerizing program that draws upon the otherworldly talents of pianist Yuja Wang.
