Among the many outdoor music events this summer in South Puget Sound is the annual Tacoma Community College Summer Orchestra. A great chance for community and amateur musicians to get together and play, it’s also a great opportunity to hear free classical music. The concert’s at noon this Saturday.
“This experience is designed to be an inclusive community event, allowing musicians from a variety of experiences to be a part of a large orchestral masterwork,” says director John Falskow, music department chair at TCC.
The program is the tuneful, Spanish-overtoned “L’Arlesienne” suites 1 and 2 by Georges Bizet. The concert starts noon August 4, and has moved from outdoors (not always practical, in a Northwest summer) to inside the building 2 auditorium (park in the corner lot at Mildred and South 12th Streets). Donations will be accepted.
