Seattle Festival Orchestra: Resisting Oppression
$18-$30 ($14 senior, $5 ages 5-18; ages 4 & under free); bulk discounts available
- Jeffrey Snedeker, French horn (Sunday only)
Reinhold Glière — Horn Concerto, Op. 91 (Jeffrey Snedeker, French horn (Sunday only))
Felix Mendelssohn — Symphony No. 3 in A minor, Op. 56 "Scottish"
This concert celebrates the communities who have had to resist oppression over the centuries. Finlandia was written as part of a resistance movement against Russian censorship in Finland at the time.
Reinhold Gliere was a Ukranian composer, representing the fortitude of the Ukrainian people's current struggle for freedom.
Mendelssohn, a Jew, was forced to convert to Catholicism to avoid the rampant anti-semitism of Europe in the 19th Century.
Join us for a concert of beautiful music to celebrate the strength and endurance of those who must resist oppression.
Saturday's performance will be a shortened version of the program, where kids are engaged and accepted as they get out their wiggles and make noise from time to time.
