The Northwest Symphony Orchestra -- 28th Season

The Northwest Symphony Orchestra presents its 2014 - 2015 season with a “Family Concert”. The program begins with Richard Wagner's Prelude to Act III from Lohengrin, followed by the Holy City from northwest composer Alan Hovhaness and featuring National Trumpet Competition winner 15 year old soloist Natalie Dungey. The concert concludes with the Planets by Gustav Holst, which features video accompaniment, performed live by Adrian Wyard, incorporating images, and video, from NASA and local astrophotographer Andy Ermolli. Joining the NWSO on this concert will also be Kennedy and Mount Rainier High School Choirs.

“This is a great concert for the entire family. The Planets is one of the most popular pieces of classical music, and alongside the orchestra performance, we are excited to have video accompaniment, performed live by Adrian Wyard, incorporating images, and video, from NASA and local astrophotographer Andy Ermolli. The concert will also feature young local trumpeter sensation, Natalie Dungey- a concert not to be missed.”

  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.
