New location for WS Kiwanis Club’s free Seattle Symphony concert

It’s an annual tradition — the Kiwanis Club of West Seattle is again hosting a free community concert with the Seattle Symphony, but this year, it’s in a new venue at South Seattle Community College (WSB sponsor). The concert is set for 8 pm January 15, featuring conductor Thomas Hong and violist Amber Archibald. On the program:

Mendelssohn: The Hebrides (“Fingal’s Cave”), Op. 26
Jones: Benediction
Stamitz: Viola Concerto in D major, Op. 1
Tchaikovsky: Selections from Symphony No. 2 in C minor, “Little Russian”

The orchestra’s free concert will be in SSCC’s Brockey Center.; here’s the official flyer. As Kiwanian Shari Sewell tells WSB, “It is a great opportunity to hear the symphony and introduce kids to this genre of music. The Kiwanis Club of West Seattle is proud to host this annual concert!”

    I’d love to take my 7-year-old to this, but his bedtime is 8:30p. 8:00p is not exactly the most kid-friendly time to schedule this.

    yes, that’s what I thought too when I saw the time. then there is the comment; ‘introduce kids to this genre’; maybe they mean “‘tween” kids.

    Don’t know if this helps, but it’s not a school night, at least – 1/15 is a Friday.
