Events for January 2018

Friday Dec 15, 2017 • Calendar of Events

Upcoming events for the Spokane Symphony and Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox in January include:

The M Show: Music, Mayhem, Mystery with Mateusz Wolski

January 19 and 20 
Take a walk on the wild side with the Spokane Symphony’s ever curious concertmaster, Mateusz Wolski, in this witty and unorthodox show that takes place at Spokane’s Washington Cracker Co. Building. When he’s not autocross racing his beloved Lotus Elise, Mateusz is contemplating the sound of speed or competing in decibels. With an ensemble of musicians, you’ll enjoy familiar works from classical and pop music, along with smatterings of comedy and video.  “The M Show” is a fresh take on the world through the eyes of a violin virtuoso. The shows are on Friday, January 19 at 8:00 p.m. and Saturday, January 20 at 8:00 p.m. at the Washington Cracker Co. Building, 304 W. Pacific Ave. Tickets are $36, or $54 for the two-show series (the second show will be May 24 and 25). DETAILS  

Spokane Youth Symphony: Harmony That Inspires

January 21
The four orchestras of the Spokane Youth Symphony — Spokane Youth Symphony Orchestra (Dr. Philip Baldwin, conductor), Spokane Youth Philharmonic (Dr. Roberta Bottelli, conductor), Spokane Youth Sinfonietta (Heather Montgomery, conductor), and Spokane Youth Strings (Dr. John Marshall, conductor) —will perform music selections inspired by Shakespeare and the traditions of folk song. This concert is on Sunday, January 21 at 4:00 p.m. at Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox. Tickets are $16 for adults, $14 for seniors, and $12 for youth 17 and under. DETAILS 

Fox Family Series:  The Peking Acrobats

January 24
Founded in 1986, The Peking Acrobats fly through the air, defy gravity, tumble, somersault, juggle and trick-cycle with agility and grace, and perform daring maneuvers atop a precarious pagoda of chairs without a safety net. The Peking Acrobats are accompanied by a traditional five-piece Chinese orchestra plus high-tech special effects, resulting in a show that feels like a festive Chinese carnival. The Peking Acrobats perform one show only at Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox on Wednesday, January 24 at 7:00 p.m. Tickets range from $25-$60.  DETAILS 

Master Class for Violin with Mira Wang

January 26
Before her performance with the Spokane Symphony on January 27 and 28, violinist Mira Wang will present a master class for local violin students selected by audition. The master class is free and open to the public to observe. It will be held on Friday, January 26 from 3:00-5:00 p.m. at Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox. DETAILS 

Spokane Symphony Classics: Scheherazade

January 27 and 28
Music Director Eckart Preu conducts the Spokane Symphony performing the U.S. premiere of Torsten Rasch’s “Tropoi” Violin Concerto, featuring violinist Mira Wang. Also on the program is Rimsky-Korsakov’s blockbuster, Scheherazade, that paints tales from Arabian Nights using dazzlingly color and oriental motifs. Stokowski’s lush orchestral arrangement of Bach’s “Komm Susser Tod” is filled with poignant harmonies and soaring melodies. This is the first of four concerts celebrating Bach’s 333rd birthday (the others are Classics 6, 7 and 9).  Saturday, January 27 at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday, January 28 at 3:00 p.m. at Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox. Tickets range from $17-$60.  DETAILS
