On April 25, the city of Duvall officially celebrated the completion of the Main Street South project. The ribbon-cutting ceremony took place at the pocket park (the “Rosenbach Corner”) on the corner of NE 143rd and SR 203. The small piece of land was donated to the city by Ruth Ann Rosenbach, who, with her husband Rex first moved to the property in the 1980s, building the home on the hill that overlooks the valley. They originally purchased the upper five acres for the homesite and bought the lower six acres at a later date, according to Ruth Ann’s sister-in-law Patsy Rosenbach. Although the house and five acres were sold a few years ago, Ruth Ann still owns the lower six acres, Patsy said.

The Sammamish Symphony Orchestra, led by conductor and music director Adam Stern, closes their 2017-2018 concert season in June with a blaze of Romanticism as they present Fire and Sentiment: Tchaikovsky’s Fifth. The program features works inspired by the Romantic movement of the late 19th century including Arthur Sullivan’s charming and cheery Overture, H.M.S. Pinafore and Edvard Grieg’s beautifully orchestrated and melodic Lyric Suites, conducted by the Sammamish Symphony’s own concertmaster, Allion Salvador. Rounding out the program, and the orchestra’s season, is Tchaikovsky’s passionate Symphony No. 5, with its musical depiction of Fate in four movements that dramatically progresses from a melancholic and somber opening to an ultimately soaring and triumphant finale.
