Rock piano / guitar / band + symphony = WHOA!
If you live in Seattle, you probably know how awesome our Seattle Symphony is! Not only do they perform masterpieces from Beethoven, Mozart, Handel, etc. etc. etc., but did you know they also have a popular music series with performing artists like Ben Folds, Brandi Carlile, and Rufus Wainwright?
The Seattle Symphony also has programs specifically for kids at the Soundbridge Music Discovery Center. For only $5 admission, you can experience musical storytelling, try out real instruments, play Wii Music, and more. Looks like fun to me!
Also, check out the Seattle Rock Orchestra! From Radiohead to Arcade Fire, they provide full orchestral backing for some of the best rock albums ever. Read about their upcoming Queen show.
