The Northwest Symphony Orchestra’s third concert in its 2012–2013 season “Spotlight on the Orchestra,” will be presented at 8 p.m. on March 16 at Holy Rosary Church in West Seattle.

This concert will include Entry of the Gods into Valhalla, from Das Rheingold, one of the four operas that comprise Richard Wagner’s The Ring of the Nibelungen cycle.

Also on the program will be Antonin Dvorak’s 8th Symphony and a selection of arias featuring soprano Cara Gabrielson.

She has also performed at the Conservatory as soloist in Bach’s Magnificat, Britten’s Hymn to St. Cecilia, and with the Oregon Ballet Theater for Mendelssohn’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and the Portland Youth Philharmonic for Poulenc’s Gloria.
