Yakima Symphony to host virtual season finale, May 30

Posted on: May 20, 2020

On May 30, Yakima Symphony Orchestra Music Director Lawrence Golan will host a virtual, interactive season finale from his home in the form of a free Zoom meeting for up to 500 people. “Conversation and a Concert with Lawrence Golan” will feature a taped performance of the orchestra’s 2017 performance of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4, preceded by a talk about the work and answers to questions from the event participants. “Conversation and a Concert with Lawrence Golan” follows the orchestra’s interview series “Stories From Home,” an extension of the current season’s storytelling theme that Golan has curated with Yakima musicians and conductors since April 25. Each weekly episode includes highlights and memories of each musician’s tenure with the orchestra, what they are most looking forward to this coming season, silver linings of the current situation, and facts about each musician followed by a brief performance by the musician. Visit the Yakima Symphony’s website for more information. Golan hosts a similar series with Pennsylvania’s York Symphony Orchestra musicians, where he is also music director, called “Musicians at Home,” part of York’s digital “YSO Offstage” offerings.
