Season 2022-2023 Concerts Welcome to the Southwest Washington Symphony’s 56th season! We look forward to sharing the joy of live, local music with you once again. We are happy to continue offering all our concerts this season free of charge, thanks to the generosity of individual donors and sponsors. If you have not done so already, we invite you to make a supporting donation to help keep our concerts free and available to everyone. Our season begins with a remarkable masterworks program at the Wollenberg Auditorium on LCC campus in October, in which we’ll feature the prodigiously talented high school senior Kaia Selden performing the glorious Dvořák Violin Concerto. This concert will also include what is considered to be the most significant work of the part-time composer, full-time physician and chemist Alexander Borodin, his Symphony No. 2, as well as Wagner’s triumphant Arrival of the Guests at Wartburg Castle, from the opera Tannhäuser. Our traditional Christmas concerts will be held in December at the Longview Community Church, where we’ll ring in the season with festive music for choir and orchestra. As always, donations collected at these concerts will be offered to local charities. Our February 2023 concerts will celebrate Longview’s centennial year in the most fitting venue for such an anniversary - the historic Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts. Our fun and friendly Family Concert will include music reminiscent of the “Roaring ‘20s” era of Longviews founding, including Gershwin’s genre shattering Rhapsody in Blue, featuring Longview native Grant Mack at the piano, period dances performed by the Evergreen Dance Studio, and a delightful Charlie Chaplin film played alongside a jazz-infused orchestral work with a most unusual name - Le Bœuf sur le toit (The Ox on the Roof) by Darius Milhaud. Selections from this program will also be offered to thousands of 4th and 5th graders from local school districts as part of our annual children’s concerts. The season concludes in April at the Wollenberg auditorium with Spring Concerts featuring this year’s Young Artist Solo Competition winner, as well as Brahms’ Academic Festival Overture, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7, and music from the ballet El Sombrero de Tres Picos by Spanish composer Manuel de Falla. This program contains dates, repertoire, and information for the entire season, which we hope will allow you to learn about, and make plans to attend, each concert. We also encourage you to note the advertisers, friends, patrons, and sponsors whose faithful financial support is so critical to our success. A directory of sponsoring advertisers is listed in this program. We are more excited than ever to bring you a season of inspiring orchestral music - see you at the concerts! Sincerely, Rob Davis, D.M.A. Music Director and Conductor of the Southwest Washington Symphony
