Spokane Symphony Masterworks 6: The Genesis Of The SSO

Mar 5th to Mar 6th

James Lowe, conductor

Archie Chen, piano

Celebrate last year’s 75th anniversary Spokane Symphony Orchestra (SSO) by experiencing some of the music performed during the orchestra’s early history. We start with the very first notes ever played by the SSO: Gluck’s Overture to Iphigenie in Aulis. Spokane’s own Archie Chen plays Robert Schumann’s soulful Piano Concerto, and we revive an early commission from composer George Frederick McKay, whose music captures the spirit of the American Northwest. Like McKay, Dvořák was influenced by the music of his native land. His Eighth symphony is inspired by jaunty Bohemian folk tunes, making it one of the cheeriest symphonies in the repertoire.

March 6th is a Matinee at 3pm
