WEEKEND: Schubert variety at Olympic Music Festival

“Today” and “tonight” in this report are Friday, Aug. 16. Saturday and Sunday are Aug. 17-18.

QUILCENE — A rondo, an impromptu and a fantasy are in store this weekend.

These are of the musical variety, and they’re all by Franz Schubert: his Impromptu No. 1 for Piano; a Rondo in B minor, and a Fantasy in C Major for Violin & Piano.

This Saturday and Sunday, pianist Julio Elizalde and violinist Tien-Hsin Cindy Wu, both internationally known players, will offer these works at the Olympic Music Festival farm at 7360 Center Road.

Concert time is 2 p.m. both days, with tickets ranging from $18 to $33 depending on whether you want to sit inside the barn or out on the lawn where the music is broadcast.

Elizalde, a musician well-known to Olympic Music Festival audiences, is now associate artistic director of the festival. He’s a member of the New Trio, which is about to release its debut album “Russian Tributes.”

Wu, for her part, has played with symphony orchestras across North America and in Russia and Taiwan.

For information about this and the rest of the festival concerts — which take place on the farm every weekend through Sept. 1 — see www.OlympicMusicFestival.org or phone 360-732-4800.
