As you may know, Seattle Symphony is traveling to New York City later this year. They will perform at Carnegie Hall as well as Le Poisson Rouge, a Lower East Side venue hailed by Seattle Symphony as “hip.” In preparation for these performances, the Seattle Symphony is offering two FREE concerts on the same evening: Friday, May 2. At 7pm, they will perform the program for their Carnegie Hall appearance, and later, at 10pm, they will perform the Poisson Rouge set. (Tickets to both concerts are now unavailable due to high demand.)
One of the most exciting parts of this trip to NYC is the world premiere of up-and-coming Seattle composer Angelique Poteat’s piece Much Difference. This piece will be receiving its world premiere at the 10:00pm performance on May 2nd; that alone is a great reason to score some free tickets for the event. If you don’t know Angelique’s work, check it out. In addition to composing, she performs on clarinet regularly with Seattle Chamber Players and Seattle Modern Orchestra, among others.
Here’s a video of her work being performed by the Seattle Collaborative Orchestra:
