The program was great, the solo-violinist was fantastic, but the orchestra would sound much better if the music director would fire few musicians that played false notes. The last piece (Bizet's Carmen) that I was waiting so much was a failure.

About the Ticket Supplier: Thalia Symphony Orchestra

n Greek mythology, Thalia ("thuh-LYE-uh") is one of the nine Muses - the goddesses who inspire poets and musicians to create their art. Thalia is also the name of one of the three Graces, the supernatural embodiments of beauty and charm.

The Thalia Symphony Orchestra began in 1949 when violinist, teacher, and conductor Mikael Scheremetiew founded it as an outlet for Seattle-area musicians. Seattle music legend Stanley Chapple led the orchestra for many years. From 1987 to 2010 it was under the direction of Dr. Eric Hanson. Since 2010, TSO has been under the direction of Maestro Stephen Rogers Radcliffe. The orchestra operates under the umbrella of Thalia Allied Artists, Inc., a nonprofit educational and arts institution.
