Seattle Symphony, presto!

eMcgrathmusic13.jpgIt’s a busy week for SSO musicians. The symphony played a superb program featuring Adams’ “Doctor Atomic” Symphony Jan. 5-7, hosted classical rock star Joshua Bell Tuesday night, and rolls out another installment in the popular “Baroque and Wine” series this weekend, with a nod to the “Bach family” and highlighting the estimable playing of SSO associate concertmaster Emma McGrath (left). And don’t forget, opera fans, “Attila” opens Jan. 14 at Seattle Opera, with SSO musicians in the pit.

And some news: The symphony has named Stilian Kirov, currently serving as a conducting fellow, the SSO’s assistant conductor. He’ll conduct the symphony for the first time in an open reading session on Jan. 31, when the orchestra will read works by University of Washington student composers Abby Aresty, Yigit Kolat and Josh Archibald-Seiffer.
