Spanish-born pianist joins Port Angeles Symphony for concert

In the first full Port Angeles Symphony Orchestra concert of 2020, conductor Jonathan Pasternack will present a night of Romantic Franz Liszt piano concertos plus Mozart’s La Clemenza di Tito overture and Stravinsky’s “Firebird” suite.

The orchestra, which includes musicians from Sequim, Port Angeles, Port Townsend and the Seattle metropolitan area, will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22, at the Performing Arts Center at Port Angeles High School, 304 E. Park Ave.

Spanish-born pianist Josu de Solaun is the featured soloist, and as always Pasternack will give a short pre-concert talk about the evening’s music at 6:40 p.m.

Tickets — available at brownpapertickets.com and at the door— start at $15 for adults while youngsters 16 and under are admitted free with a paying adult.

The public is also invited to the symphony orchestra’s final rehearsal at 10 a.m. Saturday at the high school. Admission is $7 for adults and free for those 16 and younger.
