Symphony Tacoma will open its 75th Anniversary Season on Saturday, October 23, 2021 at 7:30 pm in the Pantages Theater. The concert will feature a selection of works from different eras that offer hope and healing.

The concert will open with composer and musician Patrice Rushen’s vibrant Color Express, the first movement from her first symphony, Sinfonia. “I selected this piece for its thrilling energy, bursts of happiness and symphonic sounds that call for new voices,” said Ioannides. “It reflects Patrice’s desire to bring momentum and energy into African American compositions being performed by orchestras following the Black Lives Matter movement.”
