OnÂ Sunday, Dec. 11, enjoy the sounds of the season as Burien Actors Theatre presents a Holiday Concert with the Northwest Symphony Orchestra (NWSO) Brass Quintetâ€”featuring internationally renowned soloist Natalie Dungey. This concert presents traditional holiday music played by the brass quintet in chamber-music style. The NWSO Brass Quintet is drawn from the nationally acclaimed Northwest Symphony Orchestra, which has been featured on National Public Radio and NBCâ€™sÂ Today Show.Â Artists as diverse as Alice in Chains and Natalie Cole have performed with the NWSO. Seventeen-year-old American trumpeter Natalie Dungey came to international attention through her stunning performance of theÂ Arutunian Trumpet ConcertoÂ at the National Trumpet Competition when she was 10.Â Â Since then, she has been a featured soloist with Christopher Oâ€™Reilly on NPRâ€™sÂ From The TopÂ (show #202), premiered works for trumpet and orchestra, and performed as featured soloist with orchestras and bands around the country and as far away as Japan. She performed the world premiere ofÂ Calling The Cavalry–written for her by Hollywood film composer and Grammy winner Mateo Messina (soundtrack forÂ Juno)–with the Northwest Symphony Orchestra, of which she is a member, in Benaroya Hall.
