WWU Symphony Orchestra: Revueltas, Tate, and Shostakovich

November 17 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Free – $15

Join the WSO for its first performance of the 2023-24 season, featuring two contrasting works from 1937: the visceral Sensemayá by Mexican composer Silvestre Revueltas, and Dmitri Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony, a stirring, defiant artifact of the Stalinist purges of the 1930s. In between, we present Chickasaw composer Jerod Impichchaachaaha’ Tate’s Spirit Chief Names the Animal People for orchestra and narrator, featuring acclaimed First Nations actor Sam Bob and live light art by Heather Dawn Sparks. The work tells the traditional Okanagan story of Coyote’s ill-fated attempt to beat out Bear, Salmon, and Eagle for the best name.
