The Seattle Wind Symphony closes out its masterworks concert season with Borrowed Gems on Sunday, May 14 at 3:00 pm in the Shorewood Performing Arts Center. Come celebrate Mother’s Day with the band as they play music that should have been written for band, but wasn’t. These “borrowed gems” are perhaps more popular in their band arrangements than in their original settings of ballet, symphony orchestra, television, or the church.
