EVERETT  The Pacifica Chamber Orchestra ends its sixth season with a Sunday matinee featuring a program of mid-century modern compositions.

The orchestras Summer Concert begins at 3 p.m. June 5 at First Presbyterian Church, 2936 Rockefeller Ave., Everett.
Fred Chu leads a program that includes Ernest Blochs Concertino for Flute, Viola and Strings. Pacifica members Lynn Douglas-Nicolet on flute and Agnes Chen on viola are the soloists. The piece was written in 1950 when the Swiss-born Bloch was lecturing at the University of California at Berkeley and living in Oregon.

It is one of the composers most romantic and joyful pieces ever written, Chu said.

In the 1960s, the Russian composer Rodion Shchedrin re-worked Bizets opera Carmen for strings and five percussionists. The music was composed for a new Bolshoi ballet titled Carmen Suite. In the Soviet Union it was initially deemed too modernist, sexual and insulting to Bizet.

Joining the Pacifica strings for the Shchedrin piece are percussionists Ian Alvarez, Curt Cheever, Ryan Fox, Ryan Templin and Taryn Zickefoose. Chu is playing his violin, so the work will be performed without a conductor.
The piece, Chu said, is written for 51 percussion instruments. Our musicians can not wait to perform and share this unique experience with our audience. We are the first orchestra to showcase this work in Snohomish County.

Also on the program is French composer Jacques Iberts well-known Divertissement for Chamber Orchestra.

Tickets for the concert are available at the door. Prices are $20 general admission, $15 for students and seniors. For more information, call 425-743-0255 or go to www.pacificachamberorchestra.org.

The nonprofit Pacifica Chamber Orchestra performs five subscription concerts each season with help from the Everett Cultural Arts Commission.
