Classical concert “Date Night” at Cascadia Art Museum – Saturday July 20 at 6 pm

July’s chamber music concert at Cascadia Art Museum is a confection-box assortment of short classical pieces by Debussy, Elgar, Mendelssohn, Satie and Bizet, plus a few delicious surprises.  Violinist Pamela Liu and pianist Harumi Makiyama have titled this romantic concert “Date Night.”  The program also features the world premier of two works by Edmonds-based classical composer Cal Lewin.

Pianist Harumi Makiyama’s international appearances include Benaroya Hall, Boston’s Jordan Hall, the Tokyo Bunkakaikan, and the Adriatic Chamber Music Festival in Bonefro, Italy; she is currently completing her doctoral degree in piano performance at the University of Washington.  Violinist Pamela Liu is concertmaster for the Cascade Symphony and one of the most sought after and active violinists in the Northwest. 

Your ticket includes admission to the museum galleries, so you can tour the exhibits, experience an hour of fine music in an intimate gallery surrounded by art, and be finished in time to dine out afterward.   

General admission is $18 ($12 for museum members), and includes admission to the concert and museum exhibits. Tickets are limited and are available on-line at or by calling (425) 336-4809. The museum is located at 190 Sunset Avenue S; Edmonds, WA.  There’s plenty of free parking.

The latest exhibits will be open for viewing before and after the concert:  Paintings from the Palouse – The Art of Andrew L. Hofmeister;  Quiet Hour – The Photography of Yukio Morinaga; Portraits and Self-Portraits by Northwest Artists; and Northwest Sculpture – Five Decades of Form and Innovation.

The Cascadia Art Museum was founded in 2015 in Edmonds, primarily dedicated to artwork of the Pacific Northwest from the 1880s to the 1960s, and to rediscovering Northwest artists largely forgotten today.
