STG Presents Seattle Rock Orchestra Performs The Beatles: Rubber Soul & Revolver at The Moore Theatre on Saturday & Sunday, May 9 & 10, 2020 as a part of our 2019-2020 performing arts season.
Seattle Rock Orchestra performs the Beatles' sixth and seventh studio albums, 1965's Rubber Soul and 1966's Revolver, two releases widely credited as early entries in the development of the "album era" of late ‘60s rock, which eschewed the inclusion of cover songs or obvious "singles" in favor—as author Jim Cullen puts it, "a collection of discrete but thematically unified songs whose whole is greater than the sum of its parts." Also included in the show are songs recorded at the same sessions but not included on the albums, such as “Day Tripper,” “Paperback Writer,” and others. Featured songs include “Good Day Sunshine,” “Here, There, and Everywhere,” “Eleanor Rigby,” “In My Life,” “Tomorrow Never Knows,” and many more.
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.
