Get tickets
$25 / $20 / $10 (students/youth free)

Saturday, October 6, 2018 (PDT) @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Orchestra Seattle | Seattle Chamber Singers (OSSCS)

Catherine Haight, soprano
Brendan Tuohy, tenor
José Rubio, baritone
William White, conductor

William C. White – Acadia Fanfare
Lili Boulanger – Psaume XXIV (“La terre appartient à l’Eternel”)
Aaron Copland – Suite from Appalachian Spring
Franz Joseph Haydn – “Autumn” from The Seasons

Our opening program celebrates the Earth itself as we begin a season-long focus on the work of Lili Boulanger with her taut, vigorous setting of the 24th psalm (“The Earth Belongs to the Eternal One”), featuring the Seattle Chamber Singers and Orchestra Seattle’s brass section. We then turn to one of the great American classics, Appalachian Spring by Aaron Copland (who was a student of Lili Boulanger’s sister, Nadia).

The second half of the concert features a staple of the OSSCS repertoire: Franz Joseph Haydn’s The Seasons, a celebration of country living and harvest festivities. Audience favorites Catherine Haight and José Rubio join tenor Brendan Tuohy, making his OSSCS debut, for the autumnal portion of Haydn’s final masterpiece.

This concert begins a new chapter in OSSCS’s history, the inaugural program featuring recently appointed music director William White. Maestro White offers a musical introduction by way of his own Acadia Fanfare, an orchestral showpiece written to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Acadia National Park.

Join OSSCS music director William White one hour prior to the concert (at 6:30 p.m.) for a behind-the-scenes look at the music on this program.

Tickets: $25 ($20 seniors / $10 students / youth free)
