The Debut of a National Public Television Special – in Edmonds
The First screening is sold out and at capacity!
A second screening has been added for 9pm - please call the Box Office for tickets at 425.275.9595
Last year Rick Steves teamed up with Edmond's very own Cascade Symphony Orchestra to record a special unlike anything seen before on public television; a musical tour visiting seven European countries. As the concert’s tour guide, Steves set the context as the CSO, under the direction of Micheal Miropolsky, performed Romantic 19th-century anthems. Steves’ production team mixed in evocative video images from Rick’s public television series archive that celebrated how music stirs the patriotic soul of freedom lovers everywhere. The musical itinerary included Grieg (Norway), Smetana (Czech Republic), Strauss (Austria), Berlioz (France), Elgar (Britain), Wagner (Germany), and Verdi (Italy).
This special is scheduled to debut nationwide on public stations everywhere in January 2013, but Rick Steves, ECA and the CSO invite the Edmonds community for a high-definition screening at Edmonds Center for the Arts.
