Details of New World Untuxed and the Ticket Luck value
The Seattle Symphony Orchestra is all set to perform live on the New World Untuxed concert, a one of a kind portrayal of Dvorak's New World Symphony. This is a new and unique form of classical music presentation that the Seattle Symphony has started, which features a casually clad orchestra, a shorter format and no intermissions. Dubbed the Symphony Untuxed concerts, these give visitors the opportunity of listening to world class music by the likes of Dvorak with New World Untuxed tickets in hand. The informal setting, unlike that of a more traditional orchestra concert, has been a win with many visitors.
The Seattle Symphony was founded in 1903 and plays music today under principal conductor Ludovic Morlot, at the Benaroya Hall. Located in Seattle, Washington, the orchestra has been based at the hall since 1998. Its musical season usually runs from September to July, and it is the Seattle Opera's pit orchestra for many of its productions. With over one hundred and eleven seasons so far, the symphony orchestra has also recorded one hundred and forty plus albums. The orchestra is also an award winning organization, as it is the recipient of twelve Grammy Award nominations, two Emmy Awards and more. It has received critical acclaim in the US and all over the world, and plays in what is one of the best concert venues in the world recognized for its acoustic superiority.
The symphony's New World Untuxed concert is one of its Symphony Untuxed concerts. It features an unusual format that is shorter and clad with informal musicians. This is but one chapter in a symphony renowned worldwide for its innovative and adventurous programming. It performs both classical and contemporary works and is heard each year live by over three hundred and fifteen thousand people. The symphony's first conductor was Harry West.
During the late forties, the symphony merged with the Tacoma Philharmonic, forming the Pacific Northwest Symphony Orchestra. Concerts were then staged in Olympia, Seattle and Tacoma. Carl Bricken and Eugene Linden were the conductors of this new orchestra, though the partnership of the two orchestras would last only a season. In 1983, Gerard Schwartz joined the orchestra as its music advisor and became its principal conductor a year later, and then the music director in 1985. During his tenure, the symphony would perform works by many of the twentieth century's composers including American composers whose works had not received much airplay.
Schwartz and the Seattle Symphony went on to record over one hundred commercial albums for Naxos Records and Delos International. This includes works by David Diamond and Howard Hanson, to name but a few. In 1990, the orchestra was honored with its first Grammy Award nomination for a Howard Hanson recording. The orchestra would also record music for A'lure, The Call of the Ocean, a SeaWorld, Orlando stage show. Schwartz and the symphony were the recipients of much acclaim during this era, particularly for championing American composers. Today, Gerald Schwartz is the orchestra's conductor laureate. Ludovic Morlot became the orchestra's music director and has been since 2011.
This time around, the Seattle Symphony will be performing Symphony No. 9, otherwise known as the New World Symphony, by famous Czech composer, Antonin Dvorak. His works are regarded today as some of the greatest in classical music and he was a composer who was also the director of the New York City based National Conservatory of Music of America. This particular symphony was also heavily influenced by African American spirituals and Native American culture. Altogether, fans will want to catch this concert live with New World Untuxed tickets in hand – the concert by a composer dubbed 'the most versatile composer of his time'.
