Tickets are still available for the Cascade Symphony’s two performances of its Holiday Pops Concert, to be presented on Sunday and Monday, Dec. 11 and 12.
Maestro Michael Miropolsky will perform as both director and violinist during these concerts, which include the Overture to Die Fledermaus as well as other works by Strauss. Also on the program will be Sleigh Ride and Chicken Reel by Leroy Anderson, selections from The Nutcracker, and a holiday sing-along. The orchestra will continue with a repeat performance of the Seletsky/Marcus Channuka Medley with its memorable clarinet solo, and will conclude with the Auditorium Festival March by Victor Herbert.
The concerts will take place at 7:30 p.m. at the Edmonds Center for the Arts, at 410 4th Ave. N. in Edmonds. Both will be preceded at 6:30 p.m. with a lecture by KING-FM’s Dave Beck.
The season will continue with Pathetique on Jan. 9, 2017, featuring Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 6 in B minor., as well as A Violin Festival on March 13, 2017 and Pictures at an Exhibition on May 8, 2017. The annual Children’s concert, showcasing The Tortoise & The Hare as well as the Cascade Percussion Ensemble, will be given on Saturday, Feb. 11, 2017, and the CSO Ensemble Concert will take place on Sunday, April 23, 2017. Because CSO concerts are routinely selling out, audience members are encouraged to obtain tickets early while they are still available.
CSO urges patrons to return any tickets they will not use to the ECA box office. Even though a concert may be “Sold Out,” such returned tickets do become available — even at the door. Call the ECA box office at 425-275-9595, or come to the CSO table in the lobby on concert night.
