$30 ($20 senior/student; ages 17 & under free)
Barbara Harbach — Demarest Suite
Ellen Taaffe Zwilich — American Concerto for Trumpet and Orchestra
Florence Price — Symphony No. 1 in E minor
Our 48th Season opens with Music Director Finalist Dr. Christopher T.F. Hanson and a celebration of women composers. A tribute to Marin Alsop, Joan Tower’s triumphant Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman features Philharmonia Northwest’s outstanding brass and percussion. The Demarest Suite by Barabra Harbach highlights the orchestra’s dynamic strings; it draws inspiration from Abigail Adams’ infamous plea to her husband to “Remember the ladies”. The concert includes a command performance by trumpeter Natalie Dungey, performing Ellen Taaffe Zwilich’s powerful American Concerto; and finishes with Florence Price’s iconic First Symphony, a marriage of Western European and African American musical traditions.
