Hey Marseilles Goes High Class with the Seattle Symphony Tonight

As one of the bands that we’ve had the pleasure to see improve right under our noses over the past few years, Hey Marseilles continues to evolve beyond expectations. Tonight, the band is joining forces with the Seattle Symphony for a performance that (according to the concert preview) not only promises to be “one-of-a-kind” but also promises to pay homage to “local music legends, including Jimi Hendrix and Nirvana.”

Hey Marseilles’ own impressive strings plus trumpet section will get the added boost as conductor Ludovic Morlot and the full force of the Seattle Symphony plus a few additional players will share the stage with the local orchestral pop group. HM will go on after the Orchestra performs “newly-commissioned pieces inspired by Nirvana, Quincy Jones and Jimi Hendrix, composed by William Brittelle, Cuong Vu and Vladimir Nikolaev.”

As you’d expect, you’ll be paying more for this mega-sized HM performance but if you’re a music fan, you won’t want to miss this unique evening.
