The Thalia Symphony Orchestra showcases a troupe of more than 80 instrumentalists who sonically weave classical masterpieces under the precise baton of conductor Stephen Rogers Radcliffe. On November 6, Radcliffe will cull from his experience performing in Lincoln Center and mattress stores across four continents to lead the orchestra through majestic melodies such as Tchaikovsky’s Sleeping Beauty Suite. During the January 29 performance, 24-year-old violin soloist Lauren Roth serenades the audience with string mastery sharpened from concert-mastering eight orchestras. The musicians will perform famed opera compositions on April 1, including segments from Verdi’s Aida and La Traviata, and the season’s final performance on May 12 sees piano maestro Allan Dameron joining the symphony for Beethoven’s Piano Concerto no. 5, a technically complex polka of fingers across the ivories. Between the euphonic ditties, audience members can admire the Roman Revival style and charleston-dancing phantoms of the historic Town Hall, built in 1922.

Thalia Symphony Orchestra

Thalia, one of the Greek muses said to inspire artists, must have paid Seattle a visit in 1949. That's when Mikael Scheremetiew—himself a violinist and conductor—established the Thalia Symphony Orchestra and named it for that mythic figure. Scheremetiew's wish was to give fellow local musicians another creative outlet, and it was more than granted. After a brief flirtation with opera, the organization devoted itself to music, and the aural tradition continues today.

The modern iteration of the orchestra, headed by new conductor Michael Miropolsky, features 80-plus instrumentalists, a core group frequently joined by noted soloists. The ensemble regularly performs unique concerts showcasing the work of composers united by common themes—a Tchaikovsky suite might share billing with a Dvorak symphony, while a Wagner overture could be accompanied by Schubert's latest remix. The orchestra's access to such a wide range of works is partially afforded by its Thalia Scheremetiew Library, one of the largest private music collections in the region.
