Composer, singer, guitarist, writer and political activist Caetano Veloso is one of the most influential artists in South America. The Brazilian's latest album, Abraçaço, fuses Tropicália and the indie pop of contemporary Rio with the help of Banda Cê, a trio of young musicians. Veloso is one of the leading figures of Tropicalismo, a political and musical movement that also included Gilberto Gil, Os Mutantes and Tom Zé. At 71, his latest album incorporates the style he helped invent along with swirling melodies, industrial noises and electro-acoustic rock 'n' roll. Learn More
We often enjoy a light dinner at Fonte Cafe and Wine Bar before shows at Benaroya. Much nicer than the choices in the hall.Seattle Men's Chorus Holiday Concert: Play It Again Santa dining • Jun 17 2014 star this tip starred

The Musically Speaking series is a great way to understand the background of both popular, and lesser known, classical music pieces. Each of the two pieces was prefaced with a casual yet informative commentary from the conductor's podium, complete with snippets of the performance (from the full orchestra, live) that illustrated the conductor's musical points. And the performances themselves -- especially the Schumann -- were spectacular.
While the matinee time seems to appeal to a predominantly older audience, the Seattle Symphony's Musically Speaking performances would be appropriate to classical music lovers of any age.
