Celebrate city life with NW Sinfonietta favorite Joel Fan and Artistic Partner and conductor Jeffery Meyer. Joel performs Ravel’s enchanting, jazz-influenced Piano Concerto in G Major, and joins the orchestra for a unique Tombeau de Couperin performance combining Ravel’s original, 6-movement piano suite with his 1919 orchestral version. Carlos Simon’s Graffiti is a Pacific Northwest premiere, and we are teaming up with Spaceworks Tacoma to film the creation of a new piece of public art inspired by Simon’s work, which will be screened during the performance. Aaron Copland’s exquisite, contemplative Quiet City featuring English horn, trumpet and strings rounds out this unforgettable program.
