A Spanish Rhapsody
Snake Oil Cocktail has had the privilege of managing the concessions at the San Diego Symphony for a couple years now. We love the beautiful concert hall and the opportunity to be a part of so many amazing events. This weekend (May 15-17) the Copley Symphony Hall is hosting a spectacular concert series called A Spanish Rhapsody that Snake Oil could not be more excited for. Emmanuel Chabrier,Édouard Lalo and Maurice Ravel will capture the culture, sounds and energy of Spain. Each night of the series will be full of unforgettable music combing the seductive rhythms and textures of Andalusia, Madrid and Barcelona.
The centerpiece of this Jacobs Masterworks concert, led by Music Director Jahja Ling, is Lalo’s Symphonie espagnole, a violin concerto in all but name that is shot through with gorgeous Spanish melodies and will be brilliantly executed by exciting young violinist Ray Chen. The concert concludes, appropriately, with excerpts from authentic Spanish composer Manuel de Falla‘s charming and humorous ballet The Three-Cornered Hat.
To elevate the experience to the next level, Snake Oil crafted a specialty cocktail for guests to enjoy during intermission. This concoction will feature premium vodka, pressed pineapple, lemon, rosemary-black pepper infused agave, ginger, pasteurized egg white. So do not miss out on this spectacular opportunity to enjoy some of the finest music and cocktails that Southern California has to offer. Tickets for each night can can be purchased here.
