Ivan & Alyosha with the Seattle Symphony

Update for 11/19: With respect to current statewide restrictions for Washington State and in solidarity with the Seattle community as coronavirus cases rise, the Seattle Symphony has made the decision to pause live performances from Benaroya Hall for the next few weeks. The Symphony is working to reschedule the live broadcast of Ivan & Alyosha with the Seattle Symphony (originally set for December 4); Holiday Pops with the Seattle Symphony (previously scheduled for December 11) is canceled. All Seattle Symphony Live users will be notified.

Seattle-based indie rock band Ivan & Alyosha, also known as I&A, join forces with the Seattle Symphony for one night only! I&A is led by vocalist Tim Wilson, his songwriting partners Ryan Carbary (guitar) and Pete Wilson (bass), as well as guitarist Tim Kim and drummer Cole Mauro. Known for their sweet, Beatles-esque pop harmonies and jangly guitar licks, this five-piece group has toured with everyone from Aimee Mann to Brandi Carlile. Now, with a decade of touring and recording under their belts, Ivan & Alyosha continue to hone their creative voice, unafraid to let their sound evolve while staying true to their folk-pop roots. This live broadcast is presented as part of The Essential Series, the Symphony's new cross-genre collaboration featuring diverse voices in the Pacific Northwest.

Tickets are $20 and can be purchased directly from the Seattle Symphony Live platform.
