The Seattle Philharmonic Orchestra will be bringing some lush sounds to the Renton IKEA Performing Arts Center on Sunday, October 14, 2018 with a concert comprised entirely of Slavic music: composers of Czech, Polish, Russian and Slovenian origin will be featured.
Two staples of the concert repertoire will be spotlighted: Bedrich Smetana’s symphonic poem The Moldau and Frédéric Chopin’s hauntingly beautiful Piano Concerto No. 1 with the Serbian-born pianist Milica Jela?a Jovanovi? as soloist. Autumn, the most popular portion of Alexander Glazunov’s radiant ballet score The Seasons, will be appropriately presented at this fall concert. A little-known delight by Antonín Dvo?ák, his Polonaise, completes the program.
Young student musicians from Lindbergh, Hazen and Renton High schools and Renton Youth Symphony Orchestra will participate on one selection in the program. Each student is mentored by a SPO member and are enthusiastic about this rare opportunity to perform with a professional orchestra. Participating students are also invited to perform the following week with the orchestra at Benaroya Hall.
