Tonight Roosevel High School Orchestra Having "Side by Side" Concert With The Seattle Symphony

Tonight at 7:30pm the Seattle Symphony is doing a side by side concert with the Roosevelt High School orchestra, of which there are at least three students who attended Laurelhurst Elementary School.  

Symphony players sit side by with high school students in a one hour free family friendly concert taking place at Roosevelt High School (1410 NE 66th Street).

A mother of one of the students said:

If you have young children, this is a great time to for your family to experience the high school and listen to superb music. If your children, grandchildren or children from the neighborhood attend or attended RHS, this is a great way to support the school while enjoying a fantastic musical experience.

The concert will be conducted by Stilian Kirov and the pieces to be played are:
KODÁLY: Dances of Galánta
BOTTESINI: Concerto for Double Bass, No. 2, Mvmt. I
MENDELSSOHN: Symphony No. 5 in D major, p. 107, "Reformation"

This free concert, and two upcoming others at other locations, are presented as part of the Seattle Symphony’s Family, School and Community Programs, and provide an opportunity for student musicians to play with and learn from professional musicians.
