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

For the final performance of its 2011-2012 season, the Seattle Youth Symphony will fill Benaroya Hall with an epic performance of the Messa da Requiem of Giuseppe Verdi.
At once elegiac and cathartic, Verdi’s masterpiece transcends its liturgical setting. This Requiem delivers a complex emotional portrait, not in rememberance of a single man, but for all of humankind.
The orchestra is joined on stage by the Tacoma Symphony Chorus and the UW Chamber Singers, both under the direction of Geoffry Paul Beors, and four internationally-acclaimed soloists familiar to Seattle opera and classical music audiences.
