Camas-Washougal Rotary Club to host VSO representatives

The Columbian

WASHOUGAL — Representatives from the Vancouver Symphony are scheduled to attend the Camas-Washougal Rotary Club’s breakfast meeting Oct. 31, with a recital planned afterward.

The meeting will begin at 7 a.m. at the Orchard Hills Country Club, 605 39th St., Washougal.

Salvadore Brotons, now in his 29th season leading the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra as music director and conductor, will share his global perspective on music and the arts in context of Rotary’s world peace initiative. Brotons has guest-conducted orchestras internationally in Israel, France, Germany, China, Poland, South Korea, Mexico, Uruguay, Colombia and Spain.

Brotons will be joined by Igor Shakhman, principal clarinetist for the Vancouver Symphony and the orchestra’s executive director.

Shakhman has been heard in recitals, chamber music concerts and concert appearances throughout Europe and the U.S. As an orchestral clarinetist, he has performed with the Colorado and Oregon Symphony orchestras, Oregon Ballet Theatre, Colorado Opera Orchestra, Russian State Symphony Orchestra and the chamber orchestras of Moscow Virtuosi and Moscow Stars.

Guests are welcome to attend the meeting, and breakfast will be available for purchase.
