Tickets on sale now for Concert Cuisine

SEQUIM — Concert & Cuisine, the Port Angeles Symphony’s fall celebration of live music and young performers, heads for a new venue this year.

The evening, featuring a gourmet dinner created especially for the Symphony, will take place Friday at The Cedars at Dungeness, 1965 Woodcock Road — with the main event a mini-recital by three award-winning teenage artists from across the North Olympic Peninsula.

Violist Aliyah Cassidy Yearian of Port Townsend, a winner of the Symphony’s Nico Snel Young Artist Competition, will play a piece by Francesco Maria Veracini; fellow winners Karson Nicpon and Adam Weller will play Lalo’s Cello Concerto and Vitali’s Chaconne, respectively.

Accompanying all three will be collaborative pianist Kristin Quigley Brye.

Tickets are $75 including the multi-course dinner, wine and appetizers.

To make reservations and find out more, call the symphony office at 360-457-5579 or email PA [email protected].

Doors will open at 6 p.m. for hors d’oeuvres and beverages, the concert will begin at 6:30 p.m., and dinner will follow.

Menu choices include salmon with lemon-dill sauce, chef-carved prime rib of beef, Italian stuffed pork loin and a stuffed portobello.

Look ahead

Concert & Cuisine also presents a look at the slate of guest artists set to perform with the Port Angeles Symphony in the coming season.

Patrons will have the opportunity to sponsor these featured performers, who include Bulgarian-born pianist Anna Petrova, Spanish violinist Jesús Reina, vocalists Kristin K. Vogel and David Meyer, and three Port Angeles-bred artists: harpist Elizabeth Huston, violinist James Garlick and double-bassist Steve Schermer.

Concert & Cuisine was held for many years at C’est si Bon in Port Angeles. The move to The Cedars at Dungeness is “an acknowledgement, and a grateful one, to the supporters and audience members in the Sequim area,” symphony music director/conductor Jonathan Pasternack said.

Information about the orchestra and its forthcoming concerts — including the Pops & Picnic evening concert Sept. 27 and the new Pops & Picnic matinee Sept. 28 — can also be found at PortAngeles Symphony.org.
