WILSON TO PERFORM AT BENAROYA HALL FOR THE SYMPHONY’S THE ESSENTIAL SERIES – TICKETS ON SALE STARTING MAY 10
Seattle, WA — On July 9, rock legend Nancy Wilson joins the Seattle Symphony for a highly anticipated show at Benaroya Hall. The concert is the latest in the Symphony’s exciting lineup for The Essential Series, a cross-genre collaboration between the orchestra and local artists that celebrates the breadth of the Seattle music scene.
Wilson, who co-founded the iconic band Heart in Seattle, rose to global acclaim pioneering the women-fronted rock band. Known for hits like “Barracuda,” “Crazy on You” and “These Dreams,” Wilson now returns to the stage as a soloist, ready to showcase her impressive vocals and revered skills as a guitarist alongside the orchestra, with Douglas F. King Associate Conductor Lee Mills at the podium. Through her independent work, Wilson has nurtured an artistic voice distinct from the Heart sound that has largely defined her decades-long career.
From songs off Wilson’s just-released, debut solo album You and Me to Heart’s classics, the Nancy Wilson of Heart with the Seattle Symphony concert features all-new arrangements created specifically for the show by The Essential Series curator and arranger Andrew Joslyn. Born of the idea that music is an essential form of expression, the series and these original arrangements aim to blend the richness of symphonic music with the artist’s unique voice to create an unexpected soundscape for audiences.
The July 9 concert brings an exciting evening of rock ‘n’ roll to the Benaroya Hall stage for audiences everywhere through a livestreamed concert on Seattle Symphony Live, the Symphony’s streaming platform.
Tickets for the streamed concert are $30 and go on sale May 10; included with each ticket purchase is a digital download of Wilson’s new album, You and Me. Tickets for the digital concert can be purchased at live.seattlesymphony.org.
