March 23 • 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm• $10. – $32.
Orchestra at the Ocean.
Seacoast Entertainment Association will be presenting the Newport Symphony Orchestra at the Florence Event Center. Friday, March 23, 2018 @ 7:30 pm with a pre-concert talk @7:00 pm in the theater as part of its ongoing Coastal Concert Series. The Symphony proudly bills itself as the “Orchestra at the Ocean”, being the only year round professional symphony orchestra on the Oregon Coast.
The evening will be led by Adam Flat, NSO’s music director since 2007. Adam first led the NSO as a guest in 1998, and after a subsequent appearance in 2006 was invited to assume the leadership of the Orchestra after a search process that involved over 150 candidates. Now Adam enjoys a very busy career that reflects his versatility and demand. In addition to his familiar presence in the Newport community, Adam devotes time to Tuscaloosa, Alabama where he has been Music Director of the Tuscaloosa Symphony since 2011, and his base in Denver where he holds the same position with the Colorado Ballet and the Rocky Mountain West’s premier community orchestra, the Denver Philharmonic. As time allows, he is also a guest conductor for orchestras across the United States. Adam brings not only musicianship but a tireless artistic advocacy everywhere he works.
As part of the evening, Adam will introduce an exciting emerging artist, the clarinetist Narek Arutyunian to the Florence stage, showcasing Hyden’s Symphony no 26 “Lamentatione”, Wagner’s “Good Friday Spell” from Parsifal, Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto K.622 and Franz Liszt’s Symphonic Poem no. 3 Les Preludes.
The Newport Symphony Orchestra, which began in 1988, is nationally recognized for high caliber musicianship, and enhancing the quality of life in Oregon’s coastal communities with diverse inspiring performances and engaging educational activities.
