STG Presents Seattle Rock Orchestra - The Beatles: Abbey Road & Let It Be at The Moore Theatre on May 11 & 12, 2019.
Seattle Rock Orchestra (SRO) continues a long tradition, returning to The Moore Theatre stage with their annual Mother's Day weekend Beatles shows. This year SRO tackles the Beatles' much beloved final studio recordings, Abbey Road and Let It Be. The program features songs such as "Across The Universe," "Let It Be," "Get Back," "Come Together," "Something," "Oh! Darling," and concludes with Abbey Road's famous 16-minute medley. Sunday's performance will include a special opening set by Seattle Rock Orchestra Social Club, SRO's sister-orchestra comprised of adult amateur musicians.
Seattle Rock Orchestra (SRO) doesn't hide behind a rock band...it is the rock band! SRO utilizes strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion, and a rotating cast of exciting guest vocalists to deliver tribute shows unlike any other. Each SRO show juxtaposes a dynamic plethora of possibilities: the infectious energy of a dance party with a classy night out at the symphony, searing rock solos with intimate orchestral moments, and fan favorite sing-alongs with lesser known "deep cuts," all combining to create a fun yet profoundly moving night out that honors the featured artist's lasting legacy.
SRO was founded in 2008 by bassist and composer Scott Teske. In the years since, SRO has racked up an impressive resume that includes collaborations with the likes of Elvis Costello, Macklemore, DeVotchKa, Jeremy Enigk, Damien Jurado, D.R.A.M, Jesse Sykes, Rosie Thomas, Allen Stone, Jason Webley, Sir Mix-a-Lot, members of Big Star, The Posies, R.E.M., Harvey Danger, The Long Winters, Vendetta Red, Nada Surf, and Pearl Jam, on stages across Washington State including Seattle's Paramount, Moore and Neptune Theatres; Sasquatch Music Festival; Summer Meltdown Festival; and Timber Outdoor Music Festival.
In 2012, SRO began its expansion into a full-fledged arts organization with the introduction of the Seattle Rock Orchestra Summer Intensive, a week-long summer day camp for middle and high school musicians, which now hosts two sessions each summer at Seattle's Moore Theatre and at Kirkland Performance Center. Other SRO programs include Seattle Rock Orchestra Quintet, SRO's elite chamber ensemble; Seattle Rock Orchestra Social Club, a volunteer adult amateur community orchestra; and Seattle Rock Orchestra Street Band, a New Orleans-style brass band and mobile party unit.
In addition to its acclaimed public performances, Seattle Rock Orchestra (and its variants) are available to add a touch of magic to weddings, corporate and private parties, galas, openings, and other special events.
Mission Statement: Seattle Rock Orchestra believes in the power of music to heal, nourish, inspire and invigorate. SRO is committed to producing experiences that entertain, educate, and foster community, while continuing the performance and study of orchestral music as a vibrant and vital art form.
Seattle Rock Orchestra is an Associated Program of Shunpike. Shunpike is a 501(c)(3) non-profit art service organization whose mission is to strengthen the Seattle arts community by partnering with small and mid-size arts groups to develop the business tools they need to succeed.
