Seattle Symphony principal piccoloist, Zart Dombourian-Eby, is one of our very active performers even when away from Benaroya Hall. She will be both performing and teaching this Sunday, October 26, at 7:00pm in Brechemin Auditorium at UW as part of the annual Felix Skowronek Memorial Event.

The performing half of the program is focused on the piccolo and includes two pieces written specifically for her; one by Martin Amlin, one by Gary Schocker; and a Gershwin-inspired piece by Ken Benshoof (husband of Seattle Symphony cellist Theresa Benshoof!) called “Timeless.” The second hour of the evening will be devoted to a Masterclass featuring members of the Seattle Flute Society.
