Lake Washington Symphony Orchestra Celebrates Inaugural Concert


Former Bellevue Philharmonic Joyfully Takes the Stage as the LWSO


The newly formed Lake Washington Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Michael Miropolsky, will present its inaugural concert March 9th at the Lake Washington High School Performing Arts Center in Kirkland. Featured works will include Die Fledermaus Overture by Johann Strauss Jr., Swedish Rhapsody No. 1 by Hugo Alfvén, Bizet’s Carmen Suite No. 2, and Scheherazade Op 35 by Rimsky-Korsakov.

The Lake Washington Symphony Orchestra is a group of professional musicians who previously played together as the Bellevue Philharmonic Orchestra. The BPO folded in 2011 for financial reasons, but the musicians have remained committed to keeping the orchestra alive and have been working to reorganize under a new board of directors. They are pleased to continue performing under the direction of conductor Michael Miropolsky, who has a fantastic rapport with the orchestra and took it to its peak of musical artistry during the BPO's last two seasons.

The Lake Washington Symphony Orchestra's inaugural concert is March 9th at 3:00 pm, at the Lake Washington High School Performing Arts Center, 12033 NE 80th St, Kirkland WA 98033. Tickets are $25 adults, $20 seniors, and $15 students. Tickets are available through Brown Paper Tickets, For information about the LWSO, see
