‘Rachmaninoff and Roses’ Opens Symphony Tacoma’s 2022-2023 Season

Sarah Ioannides | Symphony Tacoma Music Director | Female Conductor and Composer

Symphony Tacoma will kick off its 2022-2023 season with a program of works that share a theme of ‘lush romance’. The concert will take place on Saturday, October 15, 2022 at 7:30 p.m. in the Pantages Theater.

Opening the concert is Rose Absolute, a contemporary piece by Japanese composer Karen Tanaka. The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians calls Tanaka’s music “delicate and emotive, beautifully crafted, showing a refined ear for both detail and large organic shapes…” Her love of nature and concern for the environment has influenced many of her works.
