Cascade Symphony opens new season on October 23

Oct 18, 2017

Cascade Symphony will begin its 56th season on Monday, October 23 with "Russian Arc" under the direction of Michael Miropolsky.  The concert will be performed at 7:30 at Edmonds Center for the Arts (410 4th Ave. N.), and will be preceded by a lecture by KING-FM's Dave Beck at 6:30.

The featured soloist for this concert will be fourteen-year-old violinist, Marley Erickson. Since making her solo orchestral debut at age 11, Ms. Erickson has appeared as soloist with the Seattle Symphony Orchestra, L'Accademia d'Archi Arrigoni, Mitteleuropa Orchestra, Ottawa Chamber Orchestra, the Port Angeles Symphony Orchestra, and others. By invitation of composer John Adams, she performed on the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s 2016 Green Umbrella Series, where she received a standing ovation. She was also selected as a Student Artist to perform in a symposium at the Juilliard School.

This concert features individual orchestral sections. The string section will perform two movements of the Serenade for Strings by Tchaikovsky; the winds and percussion will play El Camino Real by American composer Alfred Reed. The program will open with Spanish Dance No. 1 from La Vida Breve by De Falla..

The second half of the program will feature the Symphony No 7 by Prokofieff, a work completed just a year before his death. It was commissioned by the Soviet Children’s Radio Division and was composed with a younger audience in mind. It includes both lovely melodies and light-hearted, playful sections.

Ticket prices for this concert are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors, $15 for students with ID, and $10 for youth 12 & under. Season tickets for the 2017-2018 season can still be ordered at this concert.

Due to the demand for tickets, Cascade Symphony urges patrons to return any tickets they will not use to the ECA box office. Even though a concert is “sold out,” returned tickets do become available - even at the door.  Please call the ECA  at 425-275-9595, or come early (beginning at 6:15) on concert night and sign the wait list at the CSO table in the lobby.
