Seattle Symphony: From Beethoven to Beyoncé
June 16, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Wagner meets Adele. Beethoven meets Beyoncé. Stravinsky meets Kanye and Daft Punk. Get ready for the most ambitious pop-classical concert mashup yet from composer/producer Steve Hackman (Stereo Hideout). This sensational program weaves together pop-classical matches like Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 with Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies (“Put a Ring on It”)” and also Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony with Muse’s “Uprising” and Chance the Rapper’s “Paranoia,” creating a compelling musical landscape that is both strikingly modern and enchantingly classical. Three vocalists join the full orchestra for this special presentation.
