Philharmonia Northwest's season opener explores how modern composers reinvented music of the past. Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw was inspired by how music can "suddenly take you to the other side of Alice’s looking glass, in a kind of absurd, subtle, technicolor transition," and wrote Entr'acte after hearing one of Haydn’s String Quartets. Based on Handel's Concerto Grosso, Arnold Schoenberg's Concerto for String Quartet and Orchestra is a rebellion against the Handelian style. Igor Stravinsky's charming Pulcinella is based on songs of the 18th-century composer Giovanni Pergolesi, with modern harmonies and orchestration. 

Our two Town Hall concerts, Reinvention (Oct. 9) and Dancing in the Sun (Nov. 20), will be available for livestreaming. Access to these livestreams will be included with each in-person 2022-23 Season subscription.

COVID-19 Protocols: Philharmonia Northwest is no longer checking vaccination status or COVID tests. However, masks will be required at all concerts, and distancing is encouraged.
