Everett Philharmonic presents ‘Listener’s Choice’

May 01, 2013

Celebrate an early Mother’s Day with the whole family at the Everett Philharmonic’s Season Finale.

Join Music Director Dr. Paul-Elliott Cobbs and his orchestra as they entertain you with “Listener’s Choice” selections at the concert beginning at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 11, at Everett Civic Auditorium, 2415 Colby Ave., Everett.

The program features Ludwig von Beethoven’s majestic “Mass in C” and “Symphony No. 9.”

Both of the evening’s works will be performed with the acclaimed Pacific Lutheran University Choral Union and their famed Choir of the West.

“This is definitely a performance of grandest stature,” Dr. Cobbs said.

“The Mass and Symphony have been requested by so many of our audience members, and rightfully so. Beethoven is incomparable!

“The season finale concert promises to be the most exciting of the year.”

The “Mass in C” will open the evening with its stirring blend of melodies and harmonics. Dr. Richard Nance, director of choral activities at Pacific Lutheran University, will conduct the EPO and PLU choirs.

Dr. Cobbs takes center stage for the concluding work, “Symphony No. 9.” Together with the EPO and PLU choirs, he will work his way into the hearts of listeners.

Tickets are $25; senior and students are $20. It is festival seating, so come early. Doors open at 5:45 p.m.

There will be a “Stageside Chat” with the maestro and guests at 6 p.m.

Tickets are available online at www.everettphil.org or call 206-270-9729.
