Much more than just a concert, In the Mood is a fully staged tribute to Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman and other big band greats of the '40s. Complete with costumes, choreography, a 13-piece big band and six singer-dancers, this show pays homage to America's greatest generation, when people boogied to up-tempo big band rhythms. Hear songs like "In the Mood," "Chattanooga Choo Choo," "Sing, Sing, Sing" and more timeless hits. Many of the musical arrangements were written by Vic Schoen, the conductor and arranger for The Andrews Sisters, and music director for both Universal and Paramount Pictures. Experience the swing, the rhythm and the jazzy, brassy, sentimental music of this pivotal time in America's history. Learn More

Hear the waves crash and the wind whirl in Debussy's impressionistic postcard of the Mediterranean. New to Seattle this season, Beyond the Score takes an in-depth look at the classics of the repertoire. On the first half of the program, narrator Steve Reeder, local actors, Seattle Symphony and a big-screen presentation explore the history of a great masterwork. Then, after intermission, your concert experience comes full circle when the Orchestra performs the work in its entirety.
Created by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
