The Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra presents “Symphonic Metamorphosis” on Friday, May 31 and Sunday, June 2 at Bainbridge Performing Arts.

In celebration of the Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra’s 40th anniversary, the orchestra has commissioned a new work by composer Brett Kroening. This work will make its world premiere in “Symphonic Metamorphosis,” the orchestra’s final concert of the season.

Kroening is an active, international composer currently based in Albuquerque, N.M. He has received commissions from The Copper Street Brass Quintet, Rocky Mountain Brassworks, Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra, Camarata Music Company (Seoul, Korea), Waterloo Sound Conspiracy, Mayfield High School Orchestra and Band, Bosque Preparatory School Wind Ensemble, and others throughout New Mexico, Colorado, California, Washington, Minnesota, Utah and Texas.

Also featured on this concert is violinist Marianne Martinoli, winner of the Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra’s 2013 Young Artist Competition Winner.

Martinoli, a 16-year-old from Monroe, has been studying violin for 12 years, the last six with University of Washington professor Ron Patterson. She is currently the concertmaster with both the Seattle Youth Symphony and the Academy Chamber Orchestra. She recently won the 2012 Bushell Concerto Competition and made her solo debut with Seattle Symphony at the December 2012 Annual Holiday Gala.

Bookending the program is Carl Maria von Weber’s Overture and March from Turandot and the work it inspired, Paul Hindemith’s 20th century masterpiece, “Symphonic Metamorphosis.”

“Symphonic Metamorphosis” appears at BPA, with split concert dates at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 31 and 3 p.m. Sunday, June 2. A pre-concert chat will be held at 2:15 p.m. Sunday.

Tickets are $19 for adults, and $16 for seniors, students, military and teachers (each youth receives free admission when accompanied by a paying adult) and may be purchased online at www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org, at 206-842-8569 or in person at BPA.
