Jayce Ogren Conducts Verdi & Sibelius
For the final concert of our 2012–2013 season, OSSCS welcomes back Hoquiam native Jayce Ogren, former assistant conductor the Cleveland Orchestra and newly appointed music director of New York City Opera. His exciting interpretation of Sibelius’ second symphony with Orchestra Seattle in October 2011 thrilled audience members and performers alike. This time, Mr. Ogren will conduct Sibelius’ majestic Symphony No. 5 along with Giuseppe Verdi’s Four Sacred Pieces, a quartet of alternately serene and powerful choral masterworks.
Single tickets (discounted for students and seniors, and free for children!) for our May 18 concert are available online (or at 1-800-838-3006).
Traffic Alert: Due to construction on Mercer Street, a portion of Highway 99 between Valley Street and the Battery Street tunnel will be closed to traffic all weekend. Concertgoers arriving from the north may experience heavier than normal traffic due to rerouting of traffic from 99 to I-5, and concertgoers arriving from the south may need to find alternate routes.
Concert Preview: Tune in to KING-FM (98.1 on your dial or online at king.org) shortly after 8:00 p.m. on Thursday evening when host Sean MacLean plays a recording of Sibelius’ Symphony No. 5.
Give BIG to OSSCS on May 15!
On Wednesday, May 15, 2013, the Seattle Foundation hosts its third annual GiveBIG event, a one-day, online charitable giving opportunity inspiring people to give generously to non-profit organizations who make our region a healthier and more vital place to live.
Each credit card donation (up to $25,000 per donor) made to OSSCS via the Seattle Foundation’s Web site on May 15 will receive a pro-rated portion of matching funds (or “stretch” pool), which depends on the total amount of donations raised on GiveBIG day.
If your donation is one of 10 chosen in a random drawing, OSSCS will receive an additional $1,000 and a round-trip airline ticket courtesy of Alaska Airlines. (And you will receive a $100 gift card, courtesy of Starbucks.) Bookmark the OSSCS GiveBIG page now and prepare to Give BIG on May 15!
