Magnuson: House Plants in Terra-Cotta Pots
Balmages: Kindred Spirits
Perrine: Only Light
Maslanka: Liberation

Join Pacific Symphony Youth Wind Ensemble as it seeks to explore music's connection to those most basic of human experiences: good and evil. Optimistic and yearning in both color and character, “House Plants in Terracotta Pots” by Roy Magnuson opens the performance in a minimalistic beckoning of curiosity, followed by Brian Balmages' introspective “Kindred Spirits.” Bask in Aaron Perrine's “Only Light” and experience the power of David Maslanka's tone poem “Liberation,” featuring a full chorus performing alongside one of the nation’s greatest youth wind ensembles.

Admission is free, but tickets are required. Seating is general admission.
