This concert is a celebration of the rebirth of Spring, welcoming the return of birds to the region. Spokane Tribal members and local students will share traditional songs such as “Ch’anwi” with Barry Moses and students singing with the orchestra.  Also included will be other songs by the children with singing, drumming, and other instruments. The performance begins with the Spokane Tribe’s traditional Prayer Song, followed by a student play, Coyote Steals the Sun and the Moon, narrated in Salish and English, presented by tribal students. The orchestra will play selections from the classical repertoire, including “Summer” from Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, with Concertmaster Mateusz Wolski as soloist, Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7, mvt. 4, Rimski-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee, and Rossini’s Overture to La gazza ladra.  The evening will conclude with a Happy Dance, inviting all to join in, featuring Tribal drumming and singing by the students. 

The event will be held at the Antoine Andrews Memorial Hall on the Spokane Tribal Pow-Wow grounds, located at the intersection of Ford-Wellpinit Road and Sherwood Loop Road, one mile East of Wellpinit’s town center.
