Sunday Philharmonia Northwest Playing At St.Stephens Church

On Sunday at 2pm, Philharmonia Northwest will be performing at  St. Stephen's Church(4805 NE 45th Street).   

Philharmonia Northwest Orchestra, was established by Frances Walton in 1976 and 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 features  Paul Taub on the flute playing Leonard Bernstein's: Three Dance Episodes from On the Town Halil and Mass.
The information says:

Philharmonia Northwest's final concert commemorates the 100th birthday of legendary American composer, conductor, and pianist Leonard Bernstein. His multi-faceted life is reflected through ragtime rhythms from the musical On the Town, the prayerful Halil for flute and chamber orchestra, and the dramatic Mass, which includes traditional Latin texts as well as English texts written by Bernstein himself, Broadway composer Stephen Schwartz, and Paul Simon.  
We also welcome two collaborators in this concert: students from Fremont Dance who will bring the exuberant rhythms to life, and the St. Stephen's Episcopal Church Choir and its music director, Michael Monnikendam. 

Pre-sale tickets are $20 general and $15 student/senior ($25/20 at the door) and can be purchased here.
