Join Kirkland Choral Society & Philharmonia Northwest for an afternoon of outstanding and emotional music! Our final concert of the season will be one of the must-see events of the Seattle area this spring; featured are two spectacular works:
- Fauré's breathtaking Requiem will be presented in its full choral-orchestral glory. It is one of the most beloved of all the great choral works, and it’s a special thrill to experience the less-frequently performed version with full orchestra. Heavenly!
- You’ll also experience the Pacific Northwest premiere of a new multi-media choral-orchestral masterpiece, The Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci. From “simply magical” (Fanfare magazine) composer Jocelyn Hagen, this extraordinary new work brings the drawings, inventions, and words of Leonardo da Vinci to life through music and visual projections. The exquisite multimedia presentation uses innovative technology to synchronize itself with the conductor's tempos, offering a glimpse of Hagen's genius.
Don’t miss this afternoon of great music and brilliant multi-media accompaniment!
Sunday, April 23 - 4:00 pm Edmonds Center for the Arts
