“Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end,” wrote the Roman philosopher Seneca. As this Town Music season comes to an end—and the Great Hall prepares for its monumental renovation—artistic director Joshua Roman celebrates the future with works by a diverse group of living (and thriving) composers. Come hear this generation’s most colorful and luxurious music for strings, including a fanciful tribute to Haydn by Pulitzer Prize winner Caroline Shaw and the world premiere of a newly commissioned score with elements of jazz from Gregg Kallor. For the members of the Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestra taking the stage alongside mentors, this program is proof positive that their chosen art form is more vibrant and open than they might ever have imagined.
