Cellist Seth Parker Woods: New Sounds, New Formats

Classical KING FM’s Dave Beck takes you backstage with Artist in Residence Seth Parker Woods to discuss his upcoming projects with the Seattle Symphony.

Performing on an instrument made of ice, introducing a high-tech concert hall, and taking musical inspiration from the worlds of dance and martial arts are all in a day's work for the cellist Seth Parker Woods. He's the first ever Seattle Symphony Artist in Residence at the new Octave 9: Raisbeck Music Center at Benaroya Hall. A dedicated advocate of new music, Seth is also passionate about creating new opportunities for fellow African-American and Latinx musicians, who are often underrepresented in the world of classical music.

The Seattle Symphony Spotlight podcast is a co-production by Classical 98.1 King FM and the Seattle Symphony. New episodes available weekly on Thursday mornings.
