Port Angeles Symphony to perform Saturday

PORT ANGELES — The Port Angeles Symphony’s last full-orchestra concert of its 90th anniversary season will feature a soloist well-known to local music lovers.

Cellist Julian Schwarz, who was an 18-year-old from Seattle when he first performed with the Port Angeles Symphony, is the featured artist on Saturday.

He will join the 60-member orchestra at 7:30 p.m. in the Port Angeles High School Performing Arts Center, 304 E. Park Ave. Conductor and music director Jonathan Pasternack will give a brief pre-concert chat at 6:30 p.m. The public also is invited to the symphony’s dress rehearsal at 10 a.m. Saturday, also at the Performing Arts Center.

For tickets and information, see portangeles symphony.org or contact the symphony office at 360-457-5579 or pasymphony@olypen.com. Port Book and News in Port Angeles also is a ticket outlet.

The cellist, now 32, will perform Dvorak’s Concerto for “Violoncello;” Schwarz and the Port Angeles Symphony played this concerto together several years ago and received a enormously enthusiastic response, Pasternack said. The Saturday concert program also promises Mozart’s Symphony No. 32 in G major and Bartok’s Concerto for Orchestra.

Musicians come from across the region to perform in the Port Angeles Symphony. On Saturday, oboist and English horn player Nancy Reis of Sequim will be featured.

The Port Angeles Symphony’s Chamber Orchestra will give two more concerts later this month: on May 19 at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Port Angeles and on May 20 at Trinity United Methodist Church in Sequim.
