Founded in 1962, the Cascade Symphony makes its home in Edmonds and is now in its 52nd season. Five subscription concerts, a Children’s concert and one chamber ensemble concert are presented each year.
The full orchestra concludes its season on Monday, May 12 under Music Director Michael Miropolsky. Natalya Ageyeva will be featured piano soloist in Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No.3. The orchestra will also perform Overture to Rienzi by Wagner and the Classical Symphony by Prokofieff. The performance will be held at the Edmonds Center for the Arts at 7:30. A pre-concert lecture will be given at 6:30 by KING-FM’s Dave Beck.
Because CSO concerts have been selling out before the performance date, audience members who wish to attend the upcoming full orchestra concert and don’t have season tickets are encouraged to get tickets early. On the day of performance, unused tickets may also be available through the ECA Box Office, and a waiting list will be compiled at the CSO table in the lobby before the concert, beginning at 6:15 p.m.
