Artistic Partner Yaniv Attar and Northwest Sinfonietta join with our partner in the arts—Tacoma Urban Performing Arts Center—to bring the story of South Sound icon Nettie Asberry to life with a new ballet choreographed and performed to Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring for 13 instruments. The second half broadens the lens to include Jessie Montgomery’s Banner, a rhapsody on the theme of ‘The Star Spangled Banner,’ and concludes with Argentinian composer Alberto Ginastera’s magnificent concerto for orchestra and ode to his homeland, the Variaciones Concertantes.
