We are thrilled to invite you to join the TSP Arts & Culture Program and its partner, the Seattle Festival Orchestra, for Triumph, at Town Hall Seattle, on February 25 (Saturday) and February 26 (Sunday).

The concert will start with a bang, featuring the US Premiere of Taiwanese composer Ching-Mei Lin's Paean for Warrior and Love, inspired and adapted from songs of Taiwan's indigenous Rukai (Drekay). Moving to the old masters, you will hear Beethoven's Symphony No. 7 in A major. To finish out the concert, emerging Taiwanese-American pianist Karina Tseng will bring us Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2. With this concert, the orchestra celebrates not only triumphant music but also some of the great gifts that Taiwan continues to offer classical music.

Bring the kids! A family-friendly performance that welcomes the noises necessary for kids to enjoy music is scheduled on Saturday, February 25! The shortened program (100-min total) will feature selections from all three pieces, keeping the duration short enough for the young ones in your family. There will also be a post-concert chat/Q&A with the pianist at the conclusion of Saturday's performance.

For the full impact of this marvelous music, join us on Sunday, February 26th, for the 120-min full-length symphony production.
