Music 360°: "Looking Back...Reaching Forward: The Music of Samuel Jones"
A festival exploring the music of Dr. Samuel Jones, presented by the Walla Walla Symphony and Whitman College.
From February 25 through March 1, 2015, the Walla Walla Symphony and Whitman College collaborated to present Music 360˚: “Looking Back…Reaching Forward – The Music of Samuel Jones”, a 5-day festival that explored the music and works of Dr. Samuel Jones who recently completed a 14-year tenure as Composer in Residence for the Seattle Symphony. Through this unique partnership, participants were able to attend a lecture where Dr. Jones and other composers spoke about their music, converse with them in person about the process, and finally, listen to their works. The multitude of angles offered aimed to give the listener the opportunity to gather a comprehensive understanding of the pieces, further adding to the listening experience.
