STG presents Seattle Rock Orchestra performs The Beatles' The White Album at The Moore Theatre in Seattle on Saturday, May 10 and Sunday, May 11, 2014.
SRO continues their exploration of The Beatles' discography, paying tribute to what was at the time the band's most eclectic and expansive offering to date. Featuring the songs 'Dear Prudence,' 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps,' 'Blackbird,' 'Helter Skelter,' Ob-la-di Ob-la-da,' 'Martha My Dear' and many more.
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 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, leading within months to high-profile collaborations with Jeremy Enigk, Damien Jurado, Jesse Sykes and Rosie Thomas. 2009 brought the orchestra to center stage with its sold out re-imagining of Arcade Fire's Funeral, followed by a move to the Moore Theatre for their 2010-2011 season and tributes to David Bowie, The Beach Boys, Radiohead, Queen and performances at the Sasquatch Music Festival in both 2010 and 2011. SRO continued to develop it's reputation for high quality, high energy shows over its 2011-2012 & 2012-2013 seasons with tributes to Stevie Wonder, Muse, Led Zeppelin, The Smashing Pumpkins, The Beatles, and the introduction of their annual 'New Works' and 'Chamber Rock' shows.
Now a 50+ piece orchestra with strings, woodwinds, brass, choir, backing band, and a rotating cast of guest vocalists, SRO is embarking on its fourth full season of programming.
Seattle Rock Orchestra is an associated program of Shunpike.
