Sammamish Symphony - Romantic Exotica
Thursday, April 27, 2017 at 7:30 pm
Four composers evoke lands and eras other than their own in this colorful and alluring program. Johann Strauss, Jr. demonstrates his flair for writing music in something other than 3/4 time in his Egyptian March. Camille Saint-Saëns' gifts for beguiling melodies and rich orchestration are amply displayed in the Bacchanale from his opera Samson and Delilah. Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's most popular work, the grand symphonic poem Scheherazade, caps this musical voyage to distant realms and times.
Philharmonia Northwest - In Nature’s Realm
Sunday, April 30, 2017 at 2:30 pm
Our season finale is a celebration of beautiful music that takes you to the most amazing landscapes and beyond. Dvorak’s In Nature’s Realm, part of the trilogy of Nature, Life and Love, was considered by the composer to be among his best orchestral works. Mahler’s famous song cycle, Songs of the Wayfarer, describes a young man wounded by unrequited love but finding comfort in nature. Mendelssohn’s third symphony commemorates the magical countryside of Scotland.
Everett Philharmonic Season Finale "Listeners' Choice"
Sunday, April 30, 2017 • 3-5 pm
Everett Civic Auditorium, Everett
The concert opens with Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s well-known Russian Easter Overture. Orthodox Russians’ Easter celebrates both the resurrection of Christ and the coming of Spring, and this piece is very emotional beginning with Orthodox chant and ending triumphantly with an almost pagan sense of merrymaking! Next, our wonderfully talented violinist, Maria Sampen, will perform the brilliant Brahms Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 77.

Opening its doors in 2004, Vivace! began, simply, with a focus in chamber music serving 48 students.
