Each year Allied Arts partners with Seattle Philharmonic’s outreach program to give young musicians the opportunity to join the orchestra in several rehearsals and then perform with the orchestra on one selection at the concert. Students from Lindberg, Hazen and Renton High Schools and Renton Youth Symphony Orchestra will participate, aided in rehearsals by their high school music teachers.
From the Allied Arts of Renton 2018 Fall Newsletter:
The Seattle Philharmonic Orchestra will be bringing some lush sounds to the Renton IKEA Performing Arts Center with a concert comprised entirely of Slavic music: composers of Czech, Polish, Russian, and Slovenian origin will be featured. Two staples of the concert repertoire will be spotlighted: Bedrich Smetana’s symphonic poem The Moldau and Frédéric Chopin’s hauntingly beautiful Piano Concerto No. 1 with the Serbian-born pianist Milica Jelača Joanović as soloist. Autumn, the most popular portion of Alexander Glazunov’s radiant ballet score The Seasons, will be appropriately presented at this fall concert. A little-known delight by Antonín Dvořák, his Polonaise, completes the program.
Admission: $8 adults, $5 seniors, $3 students (18 and under)
