Past event: La Boulangerie

Join Aurora for an eclectic evening in the legendary Parisian salon of Nadia Boulanger, perhaps the most influential woman in 20th-century music. Boulanger was not only an outstanding composer and conductor, but she also taught composition to an extraordinary roster of musical greats, including Burt Bacharach, Leonard Bernstein, Thea Musgrave and Aaron Copland.

This playful exploration of Boulanger’s remarkable legacy includes performances of her own music, alongside pieces by the numerous musicians Boulanger mentored throughout her long and illustrious career, including Astor Piazzolla, Philip Glass and her sister Lili Boulanger, all performed in the intimate setting of an Aurora Lock-In.
