Seattle Symphony Announces 2010-11 Season
The Seattle Symphony has announced its 2010-11 season. The 2010-11 season is Gerard Schwarz's final season as Music Director, and is a celebration of his twenty-six highly successful years with the Seattle Symphony. It's hard to know where to start when honoring Maestro Schwarz, but this paragraph from the season brochure is excellent.
Since his appointment as Music Advisor to Seattle Symphony in 1983, Maestro Schwarz has led the Orchestra to dramatic new heights. Because of his vision, Seattle Symphony calls home one of the greatest concert halls in the world: beautiful Benaroya Hall, the jewel in Seattle’s crown. Because of his passion, the Orchestra has seen unprecedented artistic growth — from dozens of recordings, many honored with Grammy nods, to television specials decorated with Emmy Awards. And because of his energy and enthusiasm, the Symphony has built an array of award-winning education and community programs that bring symphonic music to all corners of our community.
The 2010-11 season also includes many exciting soloists and guest conductors; Yo-Yo Ma, Yefim Bronfman, André Watts, Gil Shaham, Vadim Repin, Pinchas Zukerman, Itzhak Perlman, Elmar Oliveira, Vladimir Feltsman, Leila Josefowicz, Peter Serkin, Stephen Hough, Mark Wigglesworth, Leonard Slatkin, Douglas Boyd, Robert Spano and our own Maria Larionoff, John Cerminaro, Elisa Barston and David Gordon are a few of the stellar list of names that will be gracing this fabulous season.
We look forward to seeing you soon at Benaroya Hall!
