Everett Philharmonic Orchestra Season Opener Concert
Sunday, October 9, 2022
Join the Everett Philharmonic Orchestra for our season opener Sunday, October 9, 2022, at 3pm in the Everett Civic Auditorium when Dr. Paul-Elliot Cobbs conducts works by Price, Saint-Saëns and Still.
Dr. Paul-Elliot Cobbs will conduct two American masterpieces and a fireworks infused showpiece for violin. Our concert will open with Florence Price’s sublime Andante Moderato from String Quartet No. 1. Similar to Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings, Price’s deeply spiritual work and soulful melody will leave a palpable impression. The Everett Phil’s concertmaster, Patrice Weed Shearer, is sure to raise everyone’s heartbeat with the energetic Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso by Camille Saint-Saëns. We just might see smoke rising from her bow as she plays a multitude of notes that would leave a bumble bee envious. We’ll conclude the afternoon with William Grant Still’s American masterpiece the Afro-American Symphony. Still’s symphony is a jazz and blues infused epic associated with the Harlem Renaissance. This massive work was the subject of Dr. Cobb’s dissertation and he’ll be conducting strings, full winds and brass, harp, celeste and even banjo from the composer’s original manuscript. Tickets on sale now for $10 - 35. Season tickets are also on sale for those looking to lock in their seats for our entire season.
