Bone Island Suite

I went to the Philharmonia Northwest concert with Kathleen Flenniken this afternoon. What an AMAZING show. Seriously, it is one of the best concerts I have been to — ever. Rebecca Loudon received not one but two bouquets and a standing ovation for her poems set to music by Roupen Shakarian. And the soprano was stunning in her flamingo-colored dress. The concert concluded with a terrifically fun Symphony #5 1/2 by Don Gillis (the lost twin of Doby Gillis?). I'm no music expert, but this orchestra is incredibly tight, fluent and spot-on in their playing. Season tickets next year?
