Seattle Modern Orchestra

Seattle Modern Orchestra is pleased to host composer Orlando Jacinto Garcia with a new piece, the clouds receding into the mountains, written for violist and University of Washington faculty Melia Watras and SMO. The title refers to both the spectacular cloud formations as well as the continually receding aural materials heard throughout the work. The concert also features Swiss composer Beat Furrer’s Aria, and Melodien for chamber orchestra by the 20th century master, György Ligeti.

At 7:30 PM there will be a pre-concert conversation with SMO’s co-artistic director Jérémy Jolley and guest composer Orlando Jacinto Garcia
