SCO Premieres Primiani’s SIRENS on West Coast

Leanna Primiani Seattle Collaborative Orchestra performed the West Coast premiere of composer-conductor Leanna Primiani’s SIRENS for Orchestra in our November 2015 concert. In talking about this piece with Primiani’s publisher, Subito Music, Anna Edwards, SCO’s Music Director commented, “It’s been a blast for me and the musicians to work on this piece!” Based after Homer’s classic “The Odyssey,” the ten-minute work premiered in 2008 at the Nashville Symphony, led by Leonard Slatkin.
