From a solo performance captured at home to a full orchestra performance from the archives and a recently recorded string quartet, there’s something for every mood. Soloist Series: Sarah Viens, trumpet on Nov 5,
Picture Studies on Nov 12, and String Quartet music of Emilie Mayer and Ludwig van
Beethoven on Nov 19.
Premiering November 5, 7:30 PM, Sarah Viens shares some heartwarming tunes in her
solo performance, including Grazioso, composed by Oskar Boehme, and Allegretto,
composed by Pierre Clodomir. Viens is Principal Trumpet of Auburn Symphony, Pacific
Northwest Ballet Orchestra, and Eugene Symphony. She is an instructor and frequent
performer with many orchestras and festivals in the Pacific Northwest.

photographs, and one sculpture. The piece brings eight seemingly disparate works of art to
musical life. This gorgeous piece of music performed by the Auburn Symphony in October
2019 will be available to stream beginning November 12 at 7:30 pm.
