A Spectacle of Napoleonic Proportions

Berlioz Requiem
I was walking by Davies Hall this evening when this poster caught my eye. It's for a special performance by the Redwood Symphony. The program doesn't quite make sense, but you'd be a fool to miss "A Spectacle of Napoleonic Proportions," "a shameless display of brass" and "an almost obscene percussion section."
