A pre-concert reception hosted by the Seattle Symphony and the Consulate General of Poland in Los Angeles was held in the Norcliffe Founders Room at Benaroya Hall before an amazing performance by Agata Zubel; a Polish-born composer and soprano. She is in Seattle to perform the world premiere of her orchestral work, In the Shade of an Unshed Tear. Distinguished guests included the Honorary Consul of the Republic of Poland in Seattle, members of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Seattle, Angelo Condello of the Seattle Music Exchange, Moises Himmelfarb-Cultural Affairs, Consulate of Mexico to name a few plus numerous music lovers from the local Polish community.

It was a cold and rainy morning but that didn’t stop these little monsters from having a good run at the annul West Seattle Monster Dash. There was a 5K Race for the parents and children followed by the Kids Dash where two monsters led the way. The kids also got to decorate tiny pumpkins to take home. Special thanks to South Seattle College Cooperative Preschools for coordinating the event. View all the images here.
There’s nothing sweeter than watching families play together…and the annual Fauntleroy Fall Festival was the place to be this past weekend. Cake walks, pumpkin painting, salmon hats, music, pony rides…what more can you ask for? And of course the annual festival photo! See them all here: http://epnw.phanfare.com/14373388
Marco is kinda shy but I think we got some great images as we wandered through Lincoln Park on down to the waters edge. Marco’s a pretty smart guy who enjoys mathematics and engineering. He has joined the track team and field team where he participates in the shot put and discus throw.
I met up with Kelly at the Arboretum at the Community College in West Seattle. What a wonderful place…it was the first time she had ever been there and just loved it… especially the Japanese Garden area…take a look!
