Sammamish Symphony Orchestra February Concert

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff
SammamishSymphonyOrchestraThe Sammamish Symphony Orchestra, led by conductor and music director Adam Stern, resumes their 2017-2018 concert season in February with Delicacy and Mastery: Mendelssohn’s “Scottish” Symphony, featuring works by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Otto Nicolai, Maurice Ravel, and of course, Felix Mendelssohn. Inspired by his sojourn to Scotland in 1829, Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 3 in a, Op. 56, “Scottish” evokes the picturesque beauty of the countryside he explored and the landscapes he saw during his visit. Also on the program are arias from two of Mozart’s most popular comic operas, Deh vieni non tardar from The Marriage of Figaro, and Come scoglio from Così fan tutte. Rounding out the performance are Ravel’s lively orchestration of traditional Greek folk songs in Five Greek Folk Songs and Nicolai’s delightful Overture, The Merry Wives of Windsor. Sharing the stage with the orchestra is soprano Tess Altiveros, a local Seattleite, whose vocal talents have taken her to performance halls throughout the Pacific Northwest and beyond and have won her praises from critics and audiences alike.
 
The two performances of Delicacy and Mastery: Mendelssohn’s “Scottish” Symphony take place Friday, February 9, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. at Meydenbauer Theater, 11100 NE 6th Street in Bellevue and Sunday, February 11, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. at Eastlake Performing Arts Center, Eastlake High School, 400 228th Ave NE in Sammamish. Tickets for both performances are on sale now; visit SammamishSymphony.org for more information.
