Join the Federal Way Symphony as they celebrate their 40th Anniversary! The event will begin with a champagne reception at 1:30pm in the lobby of the Federal Way Performing Arts & Events Center. The 2:30 pm concert will feature "Masterpieces from Three Centuries." The 18th and 19th Centuries will be represented by works from Haydn, Schubert, and Dvořák. The 20th Century will be represented by three pieces for orchestra and flute by American composers. Of particular interest is the rarely-performed and never-recorded Nocturne for Flute by Gail Kubik. Originally written for flute and piano, Symphony Music Director Adam Stern has rearranged the piece for flute with strings and harp; this performance will be the arrangement's world premiere.
