Spokane Symphony announces Spring Concert Series



The Spokane Symphony is creating five virtual 90-minute concerts of music and ideas that will be available on demand starting Friday, April 2. Each concert has a theme that will be explored from a variety of angles in addition to music performed by ensembles of Spokane Symphony musicians. Each of the five themed episodes will include short video segments of Spokane Symphony Music Director James Lowe talking with some of the most engaging experts in the Inland Northwest. Plus, viewers will get to know some of the orchestra's musicians better when Lowe chats with them about their backgrounds and thoughts about music.

The theme of Episode 1 is 'Roots,' and will explore how folk traditions have influenced classical music. Concertmaster Mateusz Wolski will discuss the influence of Polish music and culture. Music includes Dvorak (Serenade for Winds) and Bartok (Rumanian Folk Dances). Episode one debuts April 2.

Tickets go on sale on today, March 5 at 10am at www.spokanesymphony.org. The five concert series is $100, and individual concerts are $25. The website has a complete listing of the entire series.
