Free orchestra concerts with Quinton Morris

Quinton Morris, violinist, music professor and founder and director of The Young Eight, America’s only all African-American string octet, will join Associate Conductor Carolyn Kuan as she leads the Seattle Symphony in several free community concerts.
The (all Mozart) performances will be on Wednesday, January 23, at 7:30 p.m. at Langston Hughes Performing Arts Center (details here) and Friday, January 25, at 12 p.m. at Seattle City Hall (details here, and location).

Seattle Symphony Director of Education Nancy Gosen explains, “We invited Quinton to be part of our ACCESS community concerts this season due to his ongoing commitment to bringing classical music to underserved populations. Quinton is a great example to kids everywhere as someone who has succeeded in achieving his dreams and who continues to give back to his community. We welcome him back to Seattle.”
