With howling harmonies, gut-punching rhythms and a prehistoric plot that builds to the pagan sacrifice of a virgin dancing herself to death, it’s no wonder that Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring set off a riot at its first performance. Thomas Dausgaard, leading an oversized orchestra, lets loose all the physicality and wild abandon embedded in this earthshaking ballet.
Kick off the holidays at the Seattle Symphony’s 25th annual Holiday Musical Salute! The afternoon features the Seattle Symphony in a concert of seasonal favorites led by conductor Jacomo Bairos and performances by Young Artist Stephen Leou and Northwest Boychoir Apprentices. This popular holiday tradition includes a hot chocolate reception and luncheon, all to benefit the Seattle Symphony orchestra musicians and their futures. It’s the perfect way to start your holiday season!
A holiday tradition! Join conductor Jacomo Bairos and the University of Washington Chorale for this heartwarming program. Featuring seasonal classics, traditional favorites and that holiday cheer you love, this year’s Holiday Pops spreads the heartfelt warmth of the season with humor and joy.
