Following in the footsteps of popular single-instrument showcases like Banj-O-Rama, Accordi-O-Rama and Zing Go the Strings comes the inaugural Harp-O-Rama. This pan-cultural concert features legendary Celtic harpist Máire Ni Chathasaigh (who has been called “the greatest Celtic harper of our age”) and her partner, guitarist Chris Newman. They’ll perform alongside the likes of Brooklyn kora player Kane Mathis and Correo Aereo, featuring Abel Rocha and Madeleine Sosin playing traditional harp styles of Venezuela, Mexico and original compositions. Adding to the whimsy will be interstitial video performances by Harpo Marx -- yes, that Harpo Marx, who was not only a film star but also an extraordinary classical harpist -- and the namesake of this event.

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.
Rossini – Overture to La Gazza Ladra
Chausson - Poeme (Elisa Barston, violin)
Sibelius – Finlandia op. 26
Saint-Saens – Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso (Elisa Barston, violin)
Tchaikovsky – Romeo and Juliette Overture-Fantasy
Bizet – Suite No. 2 From Carmen
About the Ticket Supplier: Thalia Symphony Orchestran 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.
