Northwest Sinfonietta : Wine and Dine
October 8 @ 2:00 pm
Northwest Sinfonietta‘s season of favorites opens with Juan Pablo Contreras’s joyful homage to the birthplace of mariachi music, the Mexican state of Jalisco, where mariachis play their songs on every corner, vying for the love and attention of the crowds.
We are thrilled to premiere Roupen Shakarian’s Oboe Concerto written for oboist and wine aficionado Dan Williams. Enjoy a complimentary flight of wines and munchies with this delightful work conducted by Jeffery Meyer.
The second half is an opera extravaganza! The PLU Opera Chorus directed by James Brown and soloists Ivy Zhou, Andrew Etherington and Vashon Opera diva Jennifer Krikawa join us to bring favorite Die Fledermaus selections to the party, including the famous champagne song.
