Listen as Sammamish Symphony Orchestra performers re-create magic moments from the silver screen at the POPs! Goes Issaquah concert Aug. 26.

The concert is free, due to support from longtime Issaquah developer Rowley Properties. POPs! Goes Issaquah is meant to support arts on the Eastside and open the arts to a broader audience.

For “Music From The Oscars – Award Winning Film Scores” — the theme for the upcoming concert — the Sammamish Symphony Orchestra and conductor R. Joseph Scott plan to offer pieces from memorable Hollywood films.

The guest performer for the 16th anniversary concert is Audrey Chen, the principal cellist in the Bellevue Youth Symphony Orchestra.

Chen is a rising sophomore at Interlake High School in Bellevue. She plays on a cello on loan from the Carlsen Cello Foundation.

Chen earned first place in the solo and concerto playoffs in the 2009 Performing Arts Festival of the Eastside — a showcase for young performers — and received the Overall Excellence award.

In addition, she also claimed first place at the 2011 Washington State Solo and Ensemble Competition and received the alternate prize in the junior division of the 2011 Music Teachers National Association Festival.
