PORT ANGELES — After 31 years in donated space downtown, the Port Angeles Symphony Orchestra needs to find a new home.
The Black Ball Ferry Line has provided the symphony with its space on North Laurel Street free of charge since 1988.
But now the company needs it for its own operations, said Jonathan Pasternack, the orchestra’s music director and conductor.
“We’re so grateful for our long relationship with Black Ball,” he added. “They have been incredibly generous.”
Begun in 1932
The Port Angeles Symphony, a nonprofit organization founded in 1932, is seeking office space and must move by June 30, Pasternack said. The organization needs about 800 square feet, he estimated.
To reach Pasternack regarding new office space, call 360-457-5579 or email PASymphony@olypen.com.
Symphony concerts this season include the Port Angeles Chamber Orchestra performances with guest bassoonist Hunter Gordon on Friday at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, 301 Lopez Ave., and Saturday at Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 S. Blake Ave. in Sequim.
Full orchestra to play
The full Port Angeles Symphony Orchestra, likewise with guest soloists, has its concerts Feb. 23, March 30 and May 4 at the Port Angeles High School Performing Arts Center; another pair of Chamber Orchestra performances are set for May 17 and 18.
The symphony also has its annual Applause! Auction on March 2 at the Red Lion Hotel in Port Angeles.
Its educational initiatives include the Nico Snel Young Artist Competition at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, 301 Lopez Ave., on Saturday and the Adventures in Music program, which sends musicians to perform in schools across Clallam and Jefferson counties.
