MOHAI TO HOST THE 125TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION OF LMC DURING ITS FREE “FIRST THURSDAY” ON JULY 7

Historical music reviews at 5:00 P.M. and 6:30 P.M.

Free Birthday Cupcakes for All on the Pavilion at 5:45 p.m.

With its organizational roots in 1891, the talented members of the Ladies Musical Club of Seattle (LMC) will celebrate their 125th birthday at the Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI) with two short concerts. The lively and fun programs will share an overview of the historic organization through a variety of music performances.

Set to a light and entertaining script, the programs will include Prelude in C-sharp Minor, one of Rachmaninoff’s most famous piano compositions, performed by Moscow Conservatory-trained Valentina Rodov, who was a 2011 Van Cliburn piano competition semi-finalist; a frisky saxophone quartet; exciting steel drummers; singers from B.F. Day Elementary School; “Summer” from Piazzolla’s The Seasons, a stirring trio for violin, cello and piano; and the bouncy spiritual, Ain’t No Grave Can Hold My Body Down.
