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

This was a terrific performance. The first half of the program had to be changed because the solo cellist was unable to get to the US from Europe due to the volcano in Iceland. The guest conductor was also different for the same reason. Remarkably, the substitutions were excellent.
I took my boyfriend who is a classical music novice and the he found the commentary they provide on the Sunday matinees very helpful. I would recommend this series to anyone interested in learning more about what to listen for.
Roberto Abbado conducts the Seattle Symphony and cellist Xavier Phillips. The program will feature Hector Berlioz’s Roman Carnival Overture, Henri Dutilleux’s Tout un monde lointain (A Whole Distant World) for Cello and Orchestra, and Ludwig van Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 in C minor, Op. 67.
