Join Seattle Modern Orchestra in celebration of its tenth anniversary! The ensemble revisits some of its most memorable performances, local collaborators, celebrated composers, and Seattle “firsts.” Experience a rendition of SMO’s first commission, Shendos No. 12 by Tom Baker; John Cage’s Etcetera, an environmental piece for ensemble and tape; the ensemble’s nationally noted vocal collaboration/arrangement Now Is Forever for soprano and chamber orchestra (with soprano Maria Männistö) which composer Kate Soper created specifically for SMO; a revival of Steve Reich’s seminal work Tehillim which SMO premiered in Seattle, and a world premiere by Huck Hodge featuring SMO’s tour-de-force percussionist Bonnie Whiting. Come together to celebrate powerful music and mark a decade of Seattle Modern Orchestra.
