Jan 10, 2018

Benjamin Lulich, principal clarinet of the Seattle Symphony and Seattle Opera, will be the featured soloist when the Cascade Symphony Orchestra – under the direction of maestro Michael Miropolsky – performs its Scheherazade concert at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 15, at the Edmonds Center for the Arts (ECA), 410 4th Ave. North.

A pre-concert lecture at 6:30 p.m. by KING-FM’s Dave Beck will preview the evening’s musical pieces, including Beethoven’s Egmont Overture, Jose Pablo Moncayo’s Huapango and Scheherazade by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, in addition to Lulich’s offering.

“Showcasing his incredible technique, charming tone, and sophisticated musicianship, Ben will be performing Carl Maria Weber’s Clarinet Concerto No. 2,” said Miropolsky, music director for the Cascade Symphony Orchestra.

Lulich has held positions with orchestras throughout the United States, including the Pacific Symphony, Kansas City Symphony, Cleveland Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, the Los Angeles Opera and the Sunriver Music Festival.

He has performed with the Hollywood Studio Orchestra for numerous films and record albums. He currently is artist-in-residence at the University of Washington.

Ticket prices for this concert are $27 for adults, $22 for seniors, $15 for students with an ID and $10 for youngsters 12 and younger.

Cascade Symphony Orchestra encourages patrons to return any tickets to the ECA box office they will not be able to use.

Even though a concert is sold out, returned tickets do become available, including at the door the day of the event.
