20th Annual PLU Festival for High School Orchestras -- Friday, October 14, 2016

Reservations are now closed.

Welcome, from Jeffrey Bell-Hanson,
Director of Pacific Lutheran University Orchestras

The PLU Orchestra Invitational offers high school orchestras and chamber orchestras the opportunity to play in the world class Lagerquist Concert Hall at Pacific Lutheran University and to receive feedback from some of the most distinguished musicians in the Puget Sound.

Our guest clinician this year will be Huw Edwards, Music Director of the Olympia Symphony Orchestra and adjunct professor of music at South Puget Sound Community College. Maestro Edwards has had an international career on the podium, conducting in Canada, the UK, Hong Kong, New Zealand and Australia, as well as throughout the United States. His thirteen-year tenure in Olympia has been marked by a remarkable growth in quality of the orchestra as well as a commitment to educational outreach in the community.
