In Greek mythology, Thalia ("thuh-LYE-uh") is one of the nine Muses who inspire poets and musicians to create their art.  In the Seattle music world, Thalia, founded in 1949 and now conducted by Stephen Rogers Radcliffe, is a new musical voice at Town Hall.

The orchestra's second concert of the season, WINTER CONCERT, includes Smetana's Moldau; Tchaikovsky's Rococo Variations featuring Walter Gray, cello; and Sibelius Symphony No. 5.

Smetana: Moldau
Tchaikovsky: Rococo Variations
            Walter Gray, cello
Sibelius: Symphony No. 5

Walter Gray, Walter Gray has now broken the 30 year mark with the Seattle Symphony Orchestra after humble beginnings in the Pacific Northwest. During those years, he has been featured as soloist several times, including the world premier of a new concerto by David Kechley. "Gray played with his usual intensity and flair... the cello's lyrical possibilities are realized" (Seattle Times). Never one to rest on his laurels, he has also been on the faculties of the University of North Texas, Western Washington University, State University of New York at Geneseo, and is currently enjoying afternoons with his students at Seattle University.

This summer Mr. Gray has performed at the Santa Barbara Chamber Music Festival. "The evening closed with a shatteringly beautiful rendition of Samuel Barber's Sonata for Violoncello and Piano (1932) by cellist Walter Gray." He is also principal cello with the New Hampshire Music Festival Orchestra and has participated in the Marrowstone, Waterloo, Mostly Mozart, Grand Teton, Mt. Gretna, Olympic, Cabrillo, and Tidewater Music Festivals.

Mr. Gray has recorded for Delos, CRI, New Albion, Klavier and Mode. He has also served as recording producer for the London Symphony Orchestra, Seattle Symphony Orchestra, Northwest Chamber Orchestra, New Hampshire Music Festival Orchestra, and the New Performance Group. As a founding member of the new music ensemble Quake, Mr. Gray produced and performed on the CD Seven Mirrors, music of Chinary Ung, on New World Records. Quake was recently featured in a performance at the Zagreb Biennale in Zagreb, Croatia. The past year has seen Mr. Gray continue his world travels: from DePaul University in Chicago for Cello Slam to Moscow with the ODEONQUARTET to Korea with the Liverpool Trio.

Keep your eyes open this coming season, and you will see him continuing to perform and record with Music of Remembrance, the Barston Quartet, the Liverpool Trio, and in solo performances around Washington state.
