Seattle Rock Orchestra: David Bowie
Bowie with a classical twist!
Seattle Rock Orchestra (SRO) was born out of the desire to marry the unabashed performance energy of rock’n’roll with the broader palette of musical nuances treasured in classical music. Founded by bassist & composer Scott Teske, SRO started modestly in 2008, performing their first show as a 13-piece string orchestra. As word of the ensemble and its mission spread, the size of the group and the profile of the performances matured rapidly, leading within months to high-profile collaborations with Jeremy Enigk, Damien Jurado, Jesse Sykes and Rosie Thomas.
This time SRO is flaunting even more hits, dance tunes, and glam rock glory! Featuring David Bowie songs “Young Americans,” “Let’s Dance,” Life On Mars?” and “Changes,” T. Rex songs “Get It On (Bang A Gong)” and “20th Century Boy,” and ELO songs “Mr. Blue Sky” and “Don’t Bring Me Down,” (with many more hits by all three artists) this will be one glam-tastic evening you won’t want to miss!
