Listen Here! The Port Angeles Symphony Orchestra

The Port Angeles Symphony Orchestra, a cultural treasure for 80 years, has joined with the North Olympic Library System to make great classical music available to library cardholders. This exciting new partnership will bring the Symphony’s chosen pieces to your own home before each concert. Thanks to a great customer suggestion and financial support from the Symphony, the Library now offers CD recordings of pieces that will be featured in the 2012-2013 season. Highlights include: Tone Poems by Sibelius performed by the National Orchestra of Sweden, Le Bal Masque by Francis Poulenc performed by the New Music Studium, and The Complete Sacred Music by Vivaldi performed by a variety of orchestras.

To find the CDs in the library catalog perform  a keyword search of the catalog at using the phrase “Symphony Selection”. You can place holds on your selections and they can be delivered to your preferred branch. Please note that two of the Chamber Orchestra’s selections, Giovanni Bolzoni’s Gavotte and Paul Hindemith’s Two Ballades are not available on CD.

Through the month of October, the Port Angeles Main Library will feature a display of the CDs, materials about music appreciation and information about the Symphony season. This is just the beginning of great partnership which will benefit musicians and Symphony subscribers as well as music lovers throughout Clallam County.

The library will continue to add recordings to the collection for future seasons. More information about the Port Angeles Symphony can be found at:
