On Monday March 18 at 7:30 pm, Cascade Symphony and Music Director Michael Miropolsky will present the fourth subscription concert of the season, “All Roads Lead to Rome.” The concert will take place  at the Edmonds Center for the Arts at 410 4th Ave. N., located in downtown Edmonds. A pre-concert lecture will be presented at 6:30 by KUOW’s Dave Beck.

The featured soloist for this concert will be violinist Brittany Boulding, Concertmaster and Soloist of the Auburn Symphony Orchestra and 5th Avenue Theater. Boulding is an avid chamber musician and also performs as soloist at the annual Celtic Yuletide concerts of the internationally acclaimed Magical Strings. She will perform two pieces written for violin – the “Carmen Fantasy” by Sarasate and “Tzigane” by Ravel.

The concert will include the “Overture to Euryanthe,” by Weber and Tchaikovsky’s “Francesca da Rimini” – an emotional portrayal of the tragic tale of a beauty who was immortalized in Dante’s “Divine Comedy.” It will conclude with “Pines of Rome” by Respighi – one of three symphonic poems in a trilogy tribute to The Eternal City.

The orchestra’s 51st season will conclude on May 13 with Allan Dameron performing Beethoven’s 3rd Piano Concerto in C minor, along with the beautiful and lyrical 2nd Symphony by Rachmaninoff  and Wagner’s Overture to Tannhauser.
