Monday, October 7, 2019, from 5:30-7:00 pm in the Garfield Elementary School Gym. Free and open to all YSD young musicians and their families!
This will be the first guided concert experience that the Seattle Symphony is offering outside of Seattle. It is a unique opportunity for students and families to enjoy an important symphonic work (Mahler’s 1st Symphony) in the company of friends and family AND with movie snacks!
The Seattle Symphony’s effort to bring this concert to our community also helps with making the world of orchestral playing seem more accessible – more human. They will be bringing some SSO musicians to speak about what it’s like to play this piece, and to talk with audience members after the viewing. It is approximately 50 minutes in length.
Above is a photo of our oldest orchestra, YAMA Philharmonia’s trip to Benaroya Hall and for a workshop in Seattle last June: YAMA student Jaiden Cano conducts the orchestra with the help of guest conductor, Jonathon Heyward.
