Kirkland Civic Orchestra 2018-2019 Season

Kirkland Civic Orchestra is pleased to announce its fifth season bringing great classical music to greater Eastside and Seattle audiences.

The 2018-2019 season kicks off November 11, 2018 with a concert entitled “Frenemies,” a play on the legendary rivalry between Brahms and Tchaikovsky. KCO will perform Brahms’ second symphony, and Tchaikovsky’s Violin concerto, which will feature local favorite and award-winning violinist Charlotte Marxx of the Sempre Sisters.

KCO will once again join the Northwest University Choirs at Benaroya Hall for a celebration of Christmas music. Tickets for the December 4, 2018 concert are available through the Benaroya Hall box office.

The new year kicks off with “By Dedication,” on March 17, 2019, featuring pieces dedicated to one composer from another: Busoni’s Overture and Vaughan Williams’ 5th Symphony, both dedicated to Sibelius, and Sibelius’ 7th Symphony, his final symphonic work.

As we emerge from the darkness of winter, our May 19, 2019 spring concert explores “Shadows and Light,” with Whitacre’s richly harmonic Lux Aurumque, in an orchestral adaptation, Debussy’s symphonic poem Afternoon of a faun, and two Vaughan Williams’ pieces: A Road All Paved with Stars and Lark Ascending.

The season ends at the beginning of summer with a free pops concert in the English Garden at the Ballard (Chittenden) Locks, where we invite the audience to bring their lawn chairs and picnics, and enjoy movie and patriotic favorites and our spectacular Seattle summer weather.

Regular season concerts take place at Butterfield Chapel on the Northwest University campus in Kirkland, and are free to the public, though tickets are advised as seating is limited. Tickets are available from our website, Facebook page (www.facebook.com/KirkOrch), and via Eventbrite (kirklandorchestra.eventbrite.com).

Kirkland Civic Orchestra is an all-volunteer symphony orchestra that relies on the generosity of our players, our audience and institutions like 4Culture and corporate matching programs to fulfill our mission of enriching the lives of all members of our community through unique and high quality musical experiences.
