Poteat’s Breathe, Come Together, Embrace reviewed in the Seattle Times as “extremely accomplished and vividly picturesque.”
Melinda Bargreen of the Seattle Times writes: “Saturday night’s opener was a world premiere by the orchestra’s 2022-23 artist in residence Angelique Poteat: “Breathe, Come Together, Embrace.” Poteat’s new work in three contiguous sections is extremely accomplished and vividly picturesque, with a wide palette of tonal colors and lots of contrasts — all artfully unveiled by Morlot and the orchestra in a subtle, vital premiere.”
