Adam Stern ’77

Adam Stern ’77 says, “The Seattle Philharmonic is continuing its work in support of forgotten or neglected composers. During the 2019–20 season, it will present four US premieres by women: Mel Bonis, Ruth Gipps, Molly Kien, and Grazyna Bacewicz, as well as the world premiere of a Philharmonic commission by Washington composer Gina Gillie. The orchestra has received three grants from Women’s Philharmonic Advocacy for their efforts.”
