Whatcom Symphony presents a Harmony from Discorda March 6

Yaniv Attar, Whatcom Symphony Orchestra’s music director, has been asked many times about his philosophy of programing new music, and he has a general rule: If you have to be a musicologist or a composer to appreciate a work, that’s usually something he will not program. For that reason, he’s looking forward to the symphony’s “Harmony from Discord” concert at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 6, at Mount Baker Theatre.
