“If there is a silver lining to the pandemic,” says Seattle Symphony associate conductor Lee Mills, “it’s that Seattle artists whom the orchestra wants to work with are all in town. Typically they’d be busy with touring. Now their schedules are clear.”
The artists Mills is specifically referring to are local stars from various popular music genres who have already collaborated, or who will collaborate with, the Seattle Symphony Orchestra as part of the latter’s new Essential Series program. A new iteration of the symphony’s past Sonic Evolution concerts, the Essential Series invites different voices from Seattle’s music community to partner with the orchestra in novel kinships.
This Concert will be live streamed on Seattle Symphony Live on Friday, March 26th, at 8pm Pacific.
