Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Sammamish Symphony Orchestra the 2016-2017 Season opens with Schubert’s 8th Symphony, often referred to as his unfinished symphony. Incomplete it may be, but Franz Schubert's 8th Symphony is still a perfect masterpiece; a miraculous combination of passion, darkness and beauty. Also on the program, Seattle-based actor Kurt Beattie, longtime artistic director of ACT Theatre, joins the Sammamish Symphony for a rare performance of Benjamin Lees' setting of The Trumpet of the Swan by beloved author E. B. White. Kurt Beattie shared, “Adam has composed three scores for me. All of them superb, and all of them remarkably different. He has a knowledge of the repertoire that is second to none, and always brings forth forgotten gems.”
