Force of Nature Leif Bjaland, Conductor Beethoven Symphony No. 6, in F major, Op. 68 "Pastoral" Stravinsky "The Rite of Spring" The WSO concludes its 80th season with a celebration of nature, courtesy of two of the greatest composers the world has ever known. Beethoven saw nature as a refuge, a place to escape the agonies of the world. His Pastoral Symphony is an expansive, lyric respite for this angry revolutionary of 19th century music. Stravinsky saw nature in all its wildness and spring as a rebirth of life from roots as ancient as the earth itself. His music for the ballet The Rite of Spring stirred sensation when it was premiered in 1913, changing the course of musical history forever.

Performed at Historic Woodbury Town Hall. May 11-13 and 18-20. When Annie Clarke's husband John dies from leukaemia at an early age, her close friend Chris Harper, anxious to purchase a comfortable sofa for the visitors' lounge in the hospital where he was treated, hits upon the idea of printing a calendar featuring some of the members of the Knapely branch of the Women's Institute discreetly posing nude while engaged in traditional WI activities, such as baking and knitting, in order to raise funds. Her proposal initially is met with great scepticism, but she eventually convinces ten women to participate in the project with her. They enlist one of the hospital workers, an amateur photographer named Lawrence, to help them with the concept.
