Seattle Symphony at Benaroya Hall – Potlatch Symphony
Musicians from the Seattle Symphony performed an outstanding symphony with members of the native community from the Puget Sound area. The symphony was composed by Janice Giteck and entitled Potlatch Symphony. Potlatch is a native word that means “a gift”.Ms. Giteck worked with the native community throughout the course of a year to incorporate the Seattle Symphony sound and the native people’s music. The result is a unique piece of music paying respect to both musical genres.
Potlatch Symphony was presented during the free Day of Music at Benaroya Hall in Downtown Seattle, Washington on September 22, 2013.
