NOVEMBER 28, 9PM: TACOMA SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA


A powerful collection of European masterpieces frame this broadcast of the Tacoma Symphony's opening concert with brand-new Artistic Director Sarah Ioannides. Between Ravel's Boléro and Debussy's Nocturnes, two-time Grammy-winning percussionist Evelyn Glennie took the stage to perform the world premiere of Sean O'Boyle's Portraits of Immortal Love, inspired by the stories endured 100 years ago when families and friends awaited news of their loved ones.  Showing the power and aching beauty percussion can bring to our emotional state, the piece will feature instruments as diverse as Waterphones, Hand Bells, Singing Bowls and Shell Wind Chimes.

Read the program notes for the world-premiere piece.


 

DECEMBER 5, 9PM: SEATTLE SYMPHONY


It's difficult to overstate the importance of Igor Stravinsky's greatest ballets on the world of classical music, or even 20th century art as a whole. His partnership with the Ballets Russes has proven to be one of the most important artistic collaborations in history, not least because the dancers' physical acts inspired Stravinsky to accompany them with adventurous new sounds and techniques. Hear two of his game-changing ballets, Petrushka and The Rite of Spring, in this special broadcast.

Hear local pianist Jon Kimura Parker describe his piano transcription of The Rite of Spring, and learn why this piece is so beloved that it inspired a worldwide centenary celebration:

 

DECEMBER 6, 7:30PM: THE NUTCRACKER


This Christmas, Pacific Northwest Ballet says goodbye to its beloved production of The Nutracker, choreographed by Kent Stowell and designed by Maurice Sendak. Love it for the last time in our exclusive LIVE broadcast, hosted by KING FM host Peter Newman and PNB's Founding Artistic Directors, Kent Stowell and Francia Russell.
