On May 5, Symphony Tacoma Music Director Sarah Ioannides and Executive Director Karina Bharne will both run a half-marathon as part of the Tacoma City Marathon. Ioannides and Bharne are participating as part of what they say is a personal commitment to a healthy lifestyle and to promote Symphony Tacoma’s impact in the community. They have set up their own Facebook fundraiser, with the goal of raising $13,100 for the orchestra, in reference to the 13.1 miles they will be running. “We work together every day on and offstage to spread the joy and magic of live music,” Bharne says. “Just as physical activity keeps a body healthy and fit, music enriches a community.”
