« Cello Recital | Main | Celebrating 27 years in Seattle »


A very special event is planned on April 1, 2012. The Thalia Symphony Orchestra will be performing at Town Hall. Frances Walton will be conducting. The performance begins at 2:00 PM. Tickets and information can be found by visiting the website:  http://thaliasymphony.org

A little bit about the Orchestra (taken from their website):

"The Thalia Symphony Orchestra began in 1949 when violinist, teacher, and conductor Mikael Scheremetiew founded it as an outlet for Seattle-area musicians. Seattle music legend Stanley Chapple led the orchestra for many years. From 1987 to 2010 it was under the direction of Dr. Eric Hanson. Since 2010, TSO has been under the direction of Maestro Stephen Rogers Radcliffe. The orchestra operates under the umbrella of Thalia Allied Artists, Inc., a nonprofit educational and arts institution."

There is also a luncheon before the concert in honor of Frances Walton and her many contributions to music in our region and to the Thalia Orchestra. The luncheon, with emcee Brian Lowe from KING-FM, is in the Downstairs at Town Hall from 11:45 AM to 1:30 PM with the concert to follow at 2 PM in the Concert Hall.
