EVERETT — Following its excellent season-ending concert this past week — which included standing ovations for the orchestra, its soloists and retiring orchestra members, longtime violinists Ned Carrick and Barbara Blair Joss — the Everett Philharmonic Orchestra already has announced its four programs for 2016-2017.

The annual Masterworks concert is 7 p.m. Oct. 8 featuring Beethoven’s 7th Symphony, Copland’s “The Tender Land” Suite and pianist John Pickett joining the orchestra for Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue.”

“Music for the Imagination,” the orchestra’s annual youth-oriented concert is 3 p.m. Nov. 27, featuring the winner of the orchestra concerto competition, selections from “The Lion King,” Leroy Anderson’s “Sleigh Ride” and Rossini’s “William Tell” Overture.

“That Magnificent Mozart,” the annual concert honoring the favorite composer of maestro Paul-Elliott Cobbs’ mother, is 3 p.m. Feb. 12, 2017, at Everett First Presbyterian Church. The program includes Mozart’s “Linz”Symphony No. 36, the Overture to “Idomeneo” and Janelle Janovich-Barrera performing Mozart’s Flute Concerto in D Major with the orchestra.

The seasonal finale “Listener’s Choice” program is 3 p.m. April 30, 2017, featuring Marian Sampen performing Brahms’ Violin Concerto in D Major, Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition” and Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Russian Easter” Overture.

With the exception of the Mozart program, the concerts are performed at Everett Civic Auditorium at Everett High School.

“Music for the Imagination” tickets (kids and adults) are $10 each for four or more.

Generally, concert tickets are $25 each, with discounts for seniors, students and military. Most concerts are free for children accompanied by an adult. A general-admission season ticket is $80. Season tickets that include the “early bird” price for the EPO fund-raising gala are $160 each. More information is available at www.everettphil.org or by calling 206-270-9729.

Pineapple Shrimp Ceviche. Ceviche includes raw seafood — in this case, shrimp — that is “cooked” with lime juice, so buying good-quality fresh shrimp is a key element of this recipe. Those with health concerns prohibiting them from consuming raw seafood can saute the chopped shrimp in a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil in a pan and then chill in the refrigerator before mixing with the rest of the ingredients.
