Parnassus Project has swept the Seattle area up in open arms since the summer of 2011, presenting concerts in restaurants (The Pink Door), art galleries(Design Commission), public parks (Tuesday lunch concerts at Westlake and Occidental parks), coffee shops (Roy Street Coffee & Tea, Zoka, Tully’s), libraries (Seattle Downtown branch), and… the list just keeps going! We admire Parnassus Project’s philosophy of bringing music to the people in intimate settings that encourage conversation and community, often in the presence of excellent food and beverage.
They’re also dedicated to presenting new works by up and coming composers and featuring local musicians, two additional things that instantly caught our attention! This Friday, August 14 at 8pm, Parnassus makes their second annual summer appearance on the Wayward Music Series at the Good Shepherd Center in Wallingford. This program, Ruminations, explores American music past and present through works of George Crumb, John Adams, and a world premiere by local composer Cole Bratcher.
Second Inversion is proud to be the media sponsor of this concert – we’ll be recording the concert for our 24/7 stream and online concert archives. Don’t miss the action live and in person – RSVP to their Facebook event! We’ll see you there!
