STG Presents Seattle Rock Orchestra performs The Police at The Moore Theatre in Seattle on Saturday, November 8, 2014.
A tribute to one of the first commercially successful new wave bands, The Police's distinct brand of punk, reggae and jazz-infused rock ruled the decade between 1977 and 1987. With four of their five studio albums listed among Rolling Stone's 500 greatest albums of all time, their enduring legacy is undisputed. Seattle Rock Orchestra turns their discography upside down, shaking out hits like “Roxanne,” “Message In A Bottle,” “Don't Stand So Close To Me,” “Every Breath You Take,” and many more. Featuring David Terry (Aqueduct), Erin Austin (Ok Sweetheart), Andrew Vait (Sisters) and Annie Janzter with opening artist Naomi Wachira.
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. With a 50+ piece orchestra complete with strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion, choir and a rotating cast of guest vocalists, SRO is embarking on its fifth full season of programming.
