Olympia Symphony will take you through four seasons in one
Four seasons in one day? That’s nothing for the Olympia Symphony Orchestra, which Sunday will open an entire season full of — well — seasons. Five concerts in October, November, February, March and April will take the audience through the end of summer, darkening autumn, frozen winter, boisterous spring and a new cheerful summer, with composers from Brahms (winter) to Butterworth (fall) and local soloists such as the Olympia Youth Chorus and Tacoma violinist Svend Rønning.
“It’s my 14th year, and I’m running out of catchy concert ideas,” jokes director Huw Edwards. “No, seriously, if you name a concert something like ‘Romantic Fusion,’ it sounds more like a teabag at Starbucks.”
