Sound of ‘Sinfonia’

With more than 20 years of continuous performances to its credit, the Island Sinfonia orchestra begins its annual tour of the San Juans with a free concert Sunday, May 5, at Friday Harbor Presbyterian Church.

This year’s concert features works by Copland, Gluck, Chabrier, Sibelius, Massnet, Dvorak, as well as a stirring tribute to Lerner and Loewe, arranged by Steven Rosenhaus. Under the direction of Shaw Island conductor Ned Griffin, the orchestra includes musicians from all of the ferry-served islands, with six young Orcas Island musicians joining the ranks this season. The performance suitable for all ages, begins at 3 p.m.
