The Seattle Symphony partnered with Accelerator YMCA, New Horizons, and Youthcare to create a program called The Prism Project, which pairs the symphony's composer-in-residence, Alexandra Gardner, with self-selected participants from those organizations. The goal: create an original symphonic composition from scratch. After nine weeks of workshops, Gardner and a rotating group of queer homeless youth created Stay Elevated, which premieres under John Grade's living sculpture of an old growth cedar in the lobby of the Seattle Art Museum this Saturday at 2 p.m. The concert is brief—about 30 minutes long—and will feature a visual score inspired by the music.
