Billed as the Sonic Evolution Series, Seattle Symphony with be joining hands with the rapper Sir Mix-A-Lot. Seattle Symphony will perform as Sir Mix-A-Lot performs his Posse on Broadway, composed by Gabriel Prokofiev. Patrons of the symphony and Sir Mix-A-Lot should expect something entirely unique this summer with Sonic Evolution tickets.
With its Sonic Evolution Series, Seattle Symphony will be inclining more towards its experimental roots. At the Sonic Evolution, fans will get to witness new symphonic compositions that are written by Gabriel Prokofiev, Du Yun and Luis Tinoco. The upcoming series will be inspired by the works of Ray Charles, Bill Frisell and Sir Mix-A-Lot himself. Previously, Sonic Evolution series has taken its inspiration from the likes of Nirvana, Jimi Hendrix and Hey Marseilles. This new take on orchestra and symphony is certain to spark an interest among music fans of all kinds.
History of the Seattle Symphony goes all the way back to December 29, 1903 when it took the stage for its very first live performance. Since then, Seattle Symphony has strived to educate its audiences with its string of live programs. During its early years, the Symphony was led by Sir Thomas Beecham who developed its early reputation. Later on, the music directors like Milton Katims and Rainer Miedel led the symphony to achieve new milestones. Under Miedel's leadership, Seattle Symphony also toured across Europe for the first time in 1980. The Symphony also won 12 Grammy Award nominations and two Emmy Awards during the tenure of Gerard Schwarz as the Music Director.
Presently, Seattle Symphony is under the leadership of Ludovic Morlot, who is among some of the top conductors of our time. Apart from critically acclaimed performances of the Rite of Spring and the Damnation of Faust, Morlot also designed the Sonic Evolution which turned out to be a huge success. The 2011 – 12 marked the inaugural season for both Morlot and the Sonic Evolution. The idea behind the creation of the series was to attract that portion of audience that isn't much fond of pure classical repertoire. With Sonic Evolution, the Symphony celebrates Seattle's musical heritage. The inaugural edition of the series paid homage to Kurt Cobain, Quincy Jones and Jimi Hendrix. The night showcased three short compositions inspired by the works of these three as well as the fourth piece called Savanna on which Seattle Symphony performed alongside Hey Marseilles. The Sonic Evolution turned out to be a success among the audience members and critics, which is why it returns for yet another edition this season.
The upcoming edition of Sonic Evolution will take place on June 6, 2014 at the Seattle Symphony's very own Benaroya Hall. The night will kick off with the World Premiere of FrisLand by Luis Tinoco, followed by another world premiere of Dial 1-900 Mix-A-Lot by Gabriel Prokofiev. Sir Mix-A-Lot will take the stage along with Orchestra and Gabriel Prokofiev for the performance of Posse on Broadway / Baby Got Back. The event will also showcase world premieres of Hundred Heads by Du Yun and Creature Comforts by Pickwick and David Campbell. By the end of all performances, the attendees can also get a taste of Nonclassical Club Night in Samuel & Althea Stroum Grand Lobby for a DJ set by Gabriel Prokofiev. So celebrate Seattle's musical heritage this season with yet another exciting lineup of performances at Sonic Evolution. Come be a part of the experience with Sonic Evolution tickets.
