Orchestra plays twice, for adults and children

The Vashon Maury Chamber Orchestra will welcome spring with a concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday for adults and at 11 a.m. Saturday for children. Both concerts will be held at the Blue Heron.

The orchestra, led by music director and concertmaster Karin Choo, will be joined by Vashon musicians Linda Lee (piano) and Gaye Detzer (violin).

The program includes Delius’ lush “On Hearing the First Cuckoo in Spring” and “Air and Dance, Bach’s Orchestral Suite No. 1,” Arthur Foote’s “Suite for String Orchestra in E Major” and selections from Busoni’s beautiful and rarely heard “Concerto for Piano and Strings in D Minor.”

Tickets for Friday night are $10 for VAA members, students and seniors and $12 for general admission. Tickets for Saturday’s concert for kids are by donation.
