IRIS Orchestra is the resident, professional orchestra of the Germantown Performing Arts Center. Conducted by Michael Stern, IRIS Orchestra began in 2000 and has been thriving ever since. Their December 10th and 11th concerts will feature renowned pianist, Yefim Bronfman. The concert program is the inspiration for this classic featured menu.
Saffron Crawfish Bisque
This New Orleans inspired dish combines the flavors and techniques of French and American cuisine. Likewise, in IRIS Orchestra’s introductory piece, Pelléas et Mélisande Suite, composer Gabriel Fauré displays his French heritage while composing for an English audience.
Grilled Artisan Romaine Heart with Stilton Herb Vinaigrette and Petit Cantal
This fresh, crisp salad directly reflects the fresh, light, romantic air within IRIS Orchestra’s December concert program.
Rack of Lamb, Pecan, Mustard, Garlic, and Molasses
The evening continues with an Erling Jensen favorite, the rack of lamb. The contemporary, bold flavors are indicative of the composers featured in the upcoming IRIS concert: Faure, Mahler, Roussel, and, particularly, Tchaikovsky.
Homemade Sorbet or Ice Cream & Fresh Berries
