Classical Music Concert Sunday at St. Stephens Church

St. Stephen's Church.(4805 NE 45th Street) is having another Philharmonia Northwest on Sunday at 2:30pm.

Philharmonia Northwest Orchestra is celebrating their 41st season was started in 1976.  It was established by Frances Walton  whose policy was to "perform standard and non-standard repertoire for chamber orchestra, filling an unoccupied niche in the Seattle musical scene. The orchestra has performed music from Baroque to world premieres all over the city and the Northwest region," their website says.

Sunday's concert featues Matt Drumm playing: Rossini: La gazza ladra overture, Ney Rosauro: Concerto for Timpani and String Orchestra and Hayden: Symphony No. 103 ("Drumroll").

The information says:

We ring in our new era with the loud snare drum roll of Rossini’s La gazza ladra (The Thieving Magpie) overture. The drum theme continues with our very own percussionist, Matt Drumm, performing a romantic timpani concerto by Brazilian composer Ney Rosauro, described as “[a] unique work that explores the lyrical potential of the timpani.” Haydn’s famous “drumroll” Symphony No. 103 concludes the concert.
