Orchestra of Flight holding dinner and fundraising concert on Sunday, May 15

Orchestra-of-Flight

The Orchestra of Flight – a community orchestra based in White Center – will hold its annual fundraising event at Mt. View Presbyterian Church in White Center on Sunday, May 15, 2016, at 5 p.m.

Orchestra members provide dinner,  followed by a concert of classical and popular music that the whole family can enjoy.

“Our program this spring includes the overture to Gilbert and Sullivan’s ‘The Mikado,’ music from the opera ‘Aida,’ medleys  from ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory; and the  James Bond movies, and several other pieces,” said Matthew Kruse, the orchestra’s conductor.

The Orchestra of Flight, formerly the Boeing Concert Orchestra, was formed in 1983. The group’s mission is to bring live orchestral music to communities whose members may be unable to attend concerts in traditional venues. Many of the group’s concerts are held in retirement communities, and the group also participates in the Museum of Flight’s Wright Spirit Event every December.

The fundraising event helps defray some of the costs of carrying out the orchestra’s mission.

Mt. View Presbyterian Church is located at 10806 12th Ave SW.
