The stage, to many, is nothing more than a mirror of life. Wit, humor, surprises and passion are around every corner.

All of these elements are evoked as the Everett Symphony Orchestra kicks off its 2006-07 season tonight with “Opening Night – A Night of Drama.”

Maestro Paul-Elliott Cobbs, soprano Ellaina Pauline Lewis and the Everett Symphony join together to bring a taste of the dramatic and a musical experience that will infuse passion and drama into your life.

Selections for the evening include the “Cosi fan Tutte Overture,” by Mozart, various soprano arias performed by Lewis, and “Scheherazade” by Rimsky-Korsakov.

“Concerts at the Floyd”: The Stanwood Area Historical Society presents the first concert of the 2006-07 season featuring two noted Northwest pianists.

The series kicks off Sunday afternoon in Stanwood. Refreshments will be served.

Long known as soloists and chamber musicians, pianists Lisa Bergman and Deborah Dewey combine their talents as the four-hand duo Ventidita, or 20 fingers.

The concert will include duet arrangements of well-known music from Grieg’s “Peer Gynt Suite,” Copland’s “Variations on a Shaker Theme” and Saint-Saen’s “Carnival of the Animals.”

Local artist Bev Paulsen will be displaying her watercolor artwork.

Skagit Opera: The 2006-2007 begins with Bizet’s “Carmen,” opening this weekend in Mount Vernon.

Skagit Opera’s season includes Menotti’s “Amahl and the Night Visitors” in December and Mozart’s “The Marriage of Figaro,” Feb. 23 through March 4.

Northwest pianists Lisa Bergman and Deborah Dewey perform as Ventidita in the season-opening “Concerts at the Floyd.”
