Free Streaming This Week: You Had Me at Cello and Meet the Horn

Seattle Symphony brings new programming for kids with Tiny Clips for Tiny Tots: Brass as part of six performances scheduled for streaming this week.

The Seattle Symphony will offer six free video broadcasts this week, adding Tiny Clips for Tiny Tots: Brass to complement Meet the Instrument: Horn with Danielle Kuhlmann and rebroadcasts of You Had Me at Cello, originally performed at Town Hall Seattle’s September 2019 Homecoming Festival.

Curated by Joshua Roman, the Artistic Director of the Town Hall Music Series and former Seattle Symphony Principal Cello, You Had Me at Cello blends traditional cello music with ambitious experimentation through arrangements for cello duets to quintets.

This rebroadcast features Seattle Symphony cellists Principal Efe Baltacıgil, Associate Principal Meeka Quan DiLorenzo and Eric Han, as well as cellist Charles Jacot. Audiences can tune in for any of the of three performance broadcasts this week on Thursday at 7:30pm, Saturday at 8:30pm and Sunday at 4pm.

Meet the Instrument: Horn features Seattle Symphony horn Danielle Kuhlmann, who will introduce our youngest audiences and their families to the French horn in a fun musical exploration. The Meet the Instrument series was added to the Symphony’s broadcast lineup last week to provide more video streams for families with young children at home during this period of school closures.

Meet the Instrument: Horn will air on Wednesday, April 1, at 11am and Friday, April 3, at 11am on YouTube and Facebook.

To further expand the Symphony’s educational programming, an all-new Tiny Clips for Tiny Tots: Brass will be introduced on Saturday, April 4, at 10:30am. Seattle Symphony horn John Turman hosts a kid-friendly brass quintet performance by members of the orchestra.

The Tiny Clips for Tiny Tots series is modeled after the Symphony’s Tiny Tots Concerts, which are offered regularly throughout the season to families with young children.

These programs are a continuation of the Seattle Symphony’s commitment to share performances that provide strength, comfort and joy through video rebroadcasts and livestreams to support our community as we confront the current global health crisis.

The Seattle Symphony will continue to organize additional free livestreams and rebroadcasts until the orchestra can return to the Benaroya Hall stage.

Rebroadcasts or livestreams will occur every week through May, and programming updates will be shared at seattlesymphony.org/live. Those interested can also sign up to receive email notifications about upcoming Seattle Symphony rebroadcasts and livestreams.

Audiences can view performances on YouTube and Facebook.
