Announcing the
2014-2015 43rd Season

It is my pleasure as Music Director of the Washington Idaho Symphony to welcome you to our 43rd season, a season which promises to delight and inspire!

Ticket holders can look forward to great musical adventures and terrific performances throughout the season. Enjoy wonderful, soul-fulfilling works such as Piazzolla’s Four Seasons of Buenos Aires with Spokane Symphony Concertmaster Mateusz Wolski, Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 1 with celebrated Israeli pianist Inon Barnatan, and Beethoven’s timeless and monumental Symphony No. 3 in E-flat Major, Eroica. Come celebrate the season with an intimate Candlelight Christmas concert featuring Handel’s Messiah, and be riveted by La Tragédie de Carmen, Bizet’s powerfully dramatic opera adapted by Peter Brook. Hear a world premiere of a new piece written by our Composer in Residence, Dr. Ryan Hare, Shostakovich’s revolutionary Cello Concerto No. 1 with emerging young cellist Julian Schwarz, and Sergei Taneyev’s dramatic Symphony No. 4 in C Minor. Let your inner self dance to festive works such as Marquez’s Danzon No. 2 and Hare’s terrific musical depiction of the 1950 World Cup, Maracanazo.

Come, bring your friends and family and experience the transforming power of live musical performance. Your support of live symphony performances enhances the quality of life in our community for our fellow citizens, business owners, and most importantly, our children. Don’t Miss A Beat! Become a season ticket holder today and join us for the great musical adventure yet to come.
