Seattle Metropolitan Chamber Orchestra performs Haydn's Missa in Angustiis (Mass in a Time of Anxiety), a work that the leading Haydn biographer H. Robbins Landon called "arguably Haydn's greatest single composition." Choral Arts Northwest becomes the first chorus in the Pacific Northwest to collaborate with the acclaimed young orchestra. SMCO also performs Frank's Leyendas, a dazzling work that "mixes elements from the western classical and Andean folk music traditions, drawing inspiration from the idea of mestizaje as envisioned by the Peruvian writer Jose María Arguedas, wherein cultures co-exist without the subjugation of one by the other."
