Orchestra Seattle and the Seattle Chamber Singers proudly announce a series of nine concerts for 2014–2015 with three subscription options: the full nine-concert series, a six-concert Sunday afternoon series, or a four-concert series comprising three Saturday performances plus our ever-popular presentation of Handel’s Messiah.
An Invitation from Clinton Smith
Seen any great movies lately? What was your favorite? Today, we see a trend in entertainment: In the movie theaters, there’s Iron Lady and Lincoln. On TV, it’s Mad Men and Downton Abbey. In the opera house, Silent Night and Heart of a Soldier. These dramas capture a moment in time and deliver it to us so that we may relive it. Our 2014–2015 season brings that trend to the concert stage. Together, we will explore important moments in composers’ lives, events in history, the year 1954 and shifts in human destiny.
This season is our 45th, and to celebrate we have expanded our concert series to nine programs, including the addition of a Holiday Pops performance and an afternoon of chamber music. We’ve created two new initiatives: a concerto competition for King County students and a nationwide competition for composers, which will result in a world premiere in May.
Join us as you, our loyal listeners and supporters, make history together with our incredible musicians and fabulous roster of soloists in this anniversary season.
