Our Next Concert
¡Viva El Tango!

Elisa Barston, violin 
Sunday, May 1, 2016 - 3:00pm
Mount Baker Theatre

Spring starts with the spark of syncopated rhythms from Latin America! From Piazzolla's innovative nuevo tango style to the infectious energy of Ginastera's dances, the Latin sound infuses this concert with warmth as winter ends in the Northwest.

Seattle Symphony Principal 2nd violin Elisa Barston - praised for her glowing sound (The Strad) - makes her first solo appearance with the Whatcom Symphony.

Dr. Ed Rutschman presents a pre-concert lecture in the MBT Encore room, one hour prior to the concert. Admission to the lecture is free, but seating is limited.
