One of our favorite things? Taking care of the Earth and this beautiful Puget Sound region we call home. Canadian composer Marjan Mozetich’s expansive and moving Postcards from the Sky opens this program, which then features four outstanding local percussionists in Viet Cuong’s concerto for percussion quartet, Re(new)al, inspired by the renewable power of hydro, wind and solar energy. Debussy’s iconic La Mer, arranged by Marlijn Helder for chamber orchestra closes the program. We are delighted to collaborate with local organizations doing great work in our communities to combat the effects of pollution and climate change. Stay tuned for opportunities to connect with Tacoma Tree Foundation and Communities for a Healthy Bay around this concert.
*The Saturday concert is held at University of Puget Sound’s Scheebeck Hall.
