This concert features Seattle’s beloved cellist Nathan Chan in Tchaikovsky’s Andante Cantabile and an arrangement of David Popper’s Fantasy on Little Russian Songs. Titled “Exhilaration,” the concert also spotlights the acclaimed young African-American composer Jessie Montgomery. About her piece Strum, the composer said, “Drawing on American folk idioms and the spirit of dance and movement, the piece has a kind of narrative that begins with fleeting nostalgia and transforms into ecstatic celebration.” The concert concludes with the exhilarating String Symphony No. 2 in D major by Felix Mendelssohn.
The livestream will take place at 2:30 pm Pacific. Broadcasting live from Town Hall, Seattle, WA.
