Presented by the Kent Spotlight Series
The Seattle Rock Orchestra will perform the music of Led Zeppelin from albums I & II on Friday, March 10 at Kentwood Performing Arts Center (25800 164th Ave. SE, Covington, WA).
Seattle Rock Orchestra (SRO) doesn’t hide behind a rock band … it is the rock band. 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.
SRO is a 50+ piece orchestra with strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion, and a rotating cast of guest vocalists. SRO celebrates and perpetuates the orchestral tradition while exploring the rich history of rock and pop music.
Each SRO show juxtaposes the infectious energy of a dance party with a classy night out at the symphony; searing rock solos with intimate orchestral moments; fan favorite sing-alongs with lesser known ‘deep cuts.’ All the elements combine to honor the featured artist’s lasting legacy.
SRO was founded in 2008 by bassist and composer Scott Teske. In the years since, the group 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, and members of Big Star, The Posies, R.E.M., Harvey Danger, The Long Winters, Vendetta Red, Nada Surf & Pearl Jam. SRO has performed on stages across Washington State, including Seattle’s Paramount, Moore & Neptune Theatres, Sasquatch Music Festival, Summer Meltdown Festival, and Timber Outdoor Music Festival.
