The Northwest Symphony Orchestra -- 28th Season

The NWSO completes its 28th season with Concert 4 "Season Finale" on Saturday, April 25, 2015. The program includes Prelude, by northwest composer Gregory Youtz, The Unanswered Question, Charles Ives, with trumpet soloist, Natalie Dungey, and Gustav Mahler's Symphony #5.

“This concert features young local trumpet player sensation Natalie Dungey, as well as the entire NWSO in Mahler’s epic Fifth Symphony. The symphony includes one of the most poignant slow movements in all of classical music followed by a rousing joyous finale - a great way to conclude our season.”

 About the nwso

The mission of the Northwest Symphony Orchestra (NWSO) is to be the premier orchestra in performance and promotion of music by contemporary northwest composers while also performing, promoting, and educating the public about the full spectrum of classical music. The NWSO completed it's 2011 - 2012 season by celebrating 25 Years and reaching the milestone of performing 125 works by northwest composers and garnering its 8th ASCAP award. The NWSO is generously underwritten by the National Endowment for the Arts. The NWSO's Composer-In-Residence, Mentoring, and Symphony for Students programs provide educational enrichment to the Highline School District and the surrounding communities. These programs have proven to be highly successful, and our musicians have made positive impacts on program participants, from being role models to exposing audiences to classical music. Some of today’s young players will become professional musicians, but almost all of them will become part of an educated classical music audience.

Teacher's CEU's / Clock Hours: NWSO members who are educators may receive clock hours through the Washington Music Educators Association (WMEA).
