The Federal Way Symphony’s Winter Concert will transport listeners from modern-day Federal Way to Vienna in the last half of the 18th century. All the works in this spectacular program were composed during a 40-year period by artists who spent all or part of their creative years in the Austrian capitol.
The Winter Concert also marks the return of the symphony’s “Emerging Artists” series. This program showcases promising young solo artists, many of them performing for the first time with a professional symphony.
