Seattle Times Lauds UW Music’s Magic Flute Collaboration

Magic Flute promotion photoUniversity of Washington vocalists and instrumentalists shone brightly in the second of a series of planned collaborations with Pacific MusicWorks, as evidenced in this glowing Seattle Times review by Melinda Bargreen.   Bargreen writes, “One of the most positive environments for music students is the opportunity to perform alongside excellent professionals. At the University of Washington School of Music, the new partnership with the pros – in this case, the much-lauded Pacific MusicWorks – is providing bonuses for both students and audiences in the stellar new production of Mozart’s “The Magic Flute.”  The production was directed by Dan Wallace Miller with musical direction by Stephen Stubbs.

Next year the two organizations will launch Gluck’s “Orphée” May 20, 21 and 22nd, 2016.  Ticket information available here.
