    Cascade Symphony

    Featured soloist David Gordon

The Cascade Symphony will bring out the magic when it performs Stravinsky's "Firebird Suite" during its season opening concert Monday.
Stravinsky's first ballet exudes the themes of magic, death and renewal: Think of that scene from Disney's "Fantasia" with the wood nymph and the volcano.
The orchestra will also play an audience favorite, Rossini's "Overture to The Barber of Seville," a familiar piece to many.
Dvorak's Symphony No. 8 is an optimistic and joyous piece from start to finish, with lyrical melodies and energetic passages, according to press material about the performance.
David Gordon, principal trumpet with the Seattle Symphony, is the featured soloist for this concert. He will perform the Trumpet Concerto in E flat major by Johann Nepomuk Hummel -- one of the most challenging concertos in the trumpet repertoire, according to the press release.
Gordon, a faculty member at the University of Washington, has performed with the Boston Symphony and other orchestras stateside and abroad. In addition to serving as principal trumpet in the United States, Gordon has been a principal in France and London, and has toured extensively in Europe, and North and South America.
Cascade Symphony's concert will be preceded by a lecture at 6:30 p.m. by KUOW's Dave Beck. The Cascade Symphony is led by conductor Michael Miropolsky.
The concert starts at 7:30 p.m. Mondayat Edmonds Center for the Arts, 410 Fourth Ave. N., Edmonds. Tickets are $25, $20, $15 and $10. Call 425-275-9595 or go to For more information, go to the Cascade Symphony website at
