Composed in 1978, “Shaker Loops” has been called a “bona fide contemporary classic” by The New York Times, been highlighted in feature films, and performed worldwide. The concert also features Bartok’s “Divertimento” for strings and an original work, commissioned by Town Hall from Timo Andres, about whose work The New Yorker says “achieves an unhurried grandeur that has rarely been felt in American music since John Adams came on the scene.” The ensemble, conducted by Town Music Curator Joshua Roman, will be comprised of members and alumni from Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestras.
Doors open: 6:30pm; late seating is not guaranteed.
