Monterey Symphony Presents Sound Waves, Concert 3
The season Sound Waves comes alive in the third concert with four works all dedicated to the sea.

French composer Jacques Ibert, the director of French opera in Rome, wrote Escales – a suite for orchestra that perfectly resembles postcards from three Mediterranean ports – after finding his obsession with the sea.
