Auburn Symphony Orchestra resumes chamber series with concerts at two Auburn locations in November

Four cellists from the Auburn Symphony Orchestra will perform a wide-ranging program at two Auburn locations in November.

The orchestra’s chamber concert series continues with Cello Collection at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 22 at Geaux Brewing, 425 E. Main St., and at 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 24 at St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church, 123 L St. NE.

Cellos can evoke a wide range of emotions with their music. Heroic moments, sorrowful melodies and energetic tunes can come from this beloved instrument. The concert will include music from Bach and Vivaldi to tangos and everything in between. The concerts offer the audience a more casual and personal experience with the musicians.

Featured Auburn Symphony musicians are cellists Brian Wharton, Page Smith, Olga Ruvinov and Meg Brennand.

Wharton is ASO’s principal cellist. His love of chamber music led him to create the symphony’s chamber series.

Smith has been with the Auburn Symphony for 10 seasons. She performs frequently as a soloist with several orchestras in the Seattle region. Ruvinov began to study cello at age 7 and made her first solo performance with Perm State Opera Orchestra when she was 13.

Brennand is known for her work on modern and baroque cello. She also serves on the cello faculty at Seattle Pacific University.

General admission is $20; students are $10.

To order tickets, call 253-887-7777, or purchase online at auburnsymphony.org, or visit the box office at the concert.

Auburn Symphony’s season will continue with An Auburn Holiday Celebration at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 9 at the Auburn Performing Arts Center.
