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

STG presents _Music Matters LIVE! _featuring Vicci Martinez, Alan White, Leroy Bell, Howard Leese, Star Anna and the Laughing Dogs, The Synergia Northwest Orchestra and more TBA on Saturday, May 12, 2012 at The Paramount Theatre in Seattle.
Music Matters LIVE! blends classical, contemporary, professional and student musicians into one evening of performances that unifies cultures and musical genres. The event raises funds to provide extended learning, enrichment and performance opportunities to Northwest area music students while raising awareness of the new “Music Matters” specialty license plate.
Highlights of the evening will be performances of the Synergia Northwest Orchestra with Pacific Northwest rock recording artists including Vicci Martinez, Yes’s Alan White, Leroy Bell and His Only Friends, Howard Leese, Star Anna and the Laughing Dogs, Dora Oliveira’s Samba Reggae Revolution and very special guests. The event will be hosted by Meeghan Black. A musical addition this year will be selections from the original scores of the rock classic Madman Across The Water donated especially for this event on behalf of Sir Elton John.
The orchestra was formed for the debut Synergia Northwest benefit in 2010 and is comprised of some of the area’s finest professional classical musicians and selected players from Washington State All-State groups and regional youth and public school orchestras. The concert was launched at Tacoma’s historic Temple Ballroom in the Landmark Convention Center, and in 2011, it made its Seattle debut at The Moore Theater.
