Everett Philharmonic Orchestra’s Music for the Imagination

Nov 22, 2017

Join the Everett Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor Dr. Paul-Elliott Cobbs for their second concert of the season, “Music for the Imagination”

The show begins at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 26 in the Everett Civic Auditorium. The program features numerous works designed to heighten the season’s festivities.

Rimsky-Korsakov’s Procession of the Nobles will take place, as will the Everett Philharmonic, who will bring out songs from the Nutcracker Ballet.

The Snohomish County Teachers Association (SCMTA) 2017 Concerto Competition winner, Kaitlyn Gia Lee will also be playing at the concert.

10-year-old Kaitlyn Gia Lee is a resident of Mill Creek and a student at Penny Creek Elementary in Everett.

As a top prizewinner of over 11 competitions to date, many of them gold and silver, she brings her talents to the stage performing Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 23 in A major (K. 488) Andante & Presto.

Topping off this program is Leroy Anderson’s Sleigh Ride, featuring audience members performing the sleigh bells.

“This concert is not only for the young,” said Cobbs. “Adults will also get a kick out of the way that these works of magic display recognizable sounds of the season.”

Directly following the concert, everyone will have the opportunity to get a much closer look at the instrument families of the orchestra.

They can learn by watching the Everett Philharmonic musicians pluck, toot and pound the strings, woodwinds and brass and percussion.

There will also be hands-on activities.

Tickets are priced at $20.  Children 5-18 are $10 (Under 5 Free). Four or more tickets are priced at $10 each.

Doors open at 2:15 p.m. Tickets are available online at www.everettphil.org, or you can call 206-270-9729.
