There are things that we all have in common and things that make us different, but one thing that draws people together, no matter where they’re from, is music. Music takes many forms in our lives — from concerts to background tracks in movies — it crosses cultures and languages and brings colour and joy to daily life. Often, we don’t even notice how much it enriches our lives until it is gone.
Joyous celebration and beautiful music unites
Over the course of the pandemic, live performance, art exhibits, and many things that enrich our communities were temporarily put on hold — but not any more!
The Bremerton WestSound Symphony came back with a triumphant crescendo on Oct. 10 with a special double concert program featuring their orchestra and guest jazz vocalist Eugenie Jones. This special double act was followed on Nov. 7 with a celebratory program of music that reflects the almost-post-pandemic mood with swirling Gypsy rhythms and vibrant Flamenco, a combo that set feet tapping in time and reminded us of the freedoms we enjoy.
The Nov. 28 concert will continue in the spirit of celebration as Bremerton WestSound Symphony brings to life the joy of the season in the Bach Wedding Cantata and Advent Celebration at St. Gabriel Catholic Church.
As a gift to the community, all concerts this season are free!
Music delights and engages, whether a live concert, or a song you can’t get out of your head, and it adds aural colour and richness to every aspect of our lives. Bremerton WestSound Symphony delights in making some of the world’s best music accessible to everyone and they want to thank the many generous community supporters who made it possible to continue to bring creative and enriching programming to Bremerton.
In this holiday season, your year-end donation to the Bremerton WestSound Symphony will help them continue to bring enriching musical programs to life: Family Musical Storytime, the OrKIDstra concerts for schools, classes for kids and families, the Youth Jazz performances, and the Young Artists Competition, that celebrates visual art, are just a few of the programs on offer.
This year, give the gift of live music to yourself and to your community! Until the end of 2021, your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to to $20,000!
