Have plans for your lunch break on Friday, January 24? You do now! Join the Seattle Symphony for a free lunchtime community concert at Seattle City Hall. Stilian Kirov will conduct the Symphony in two works by Mendelssohn: his Violin Concerto in E minor, Op. 64; and selections from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Op. 21. In addition, the Symphony will perform Mozart’s Overture to The Marriage of Figaro, K. 492. The concert will feature 18-year-old violinist Sarah A. Hall from Arlington, who will perform the second and third movements of the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in E minor. All are welcome!
Seattle Symphony Executive Director Simon Woods says, “Music is for everybody, and we love the opportunity to take our great orchestra out of Benaroya Hall, and into schools, community centers and public spaces to share the joy of music. This is just one strand of our ever-increasing commitment to communities, families and young people.”
This concert is presented as part of the Seattle Symphony’s Family, School & Community programs, which are supported by Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, 4Culture, ArtsWA, Burlington Northern Santa Fe Foundation, The Clowes Fund, Inc., Elizabeth McGraw Foundation, Fales Foundation Trust, Peach Foundation, Peg and Rick Young Foundation, The Sheri and Les Biller Family Foundation, Ten Grands Seattle, Wyman Youth Trust and donations to the Seattle Symphony Annual Fund.
