CLASSICAL & OPERA


Thurs June 14 & Sat June 16

Leonard Bernstein's Wonderful Town American composer Leonard Bernstein's soaring 1953 Broadway musical Wonderful Town will be brought to life by the Seattle Symphony, as they play pieces of the score like "Christopher Street," "A Little Bit in Love," "Ohio," and more. (Benaroya Hall, $22—$122)


Fri June 15

[untitled] 3 Seattle Symphony's [untitled] series is about as cool as the symphony gets. The show starts late, everyone sits on the floor of the Benaroya Hall lobby (there are also chairs), people walk around drinking and looking great, and the orchestra plays some captivating / completely weird shit you've likely never heard of before. Featured compositions this evening come courtesy of Mason Bates, Seattle Symphony composer in residence Alexandra Gardner, and Ahmet Adnan Saygun. Bates's "Red River" weaves creepy-drippy electronic sounds with even creepier strings. Gardner's "Coyote Turns" for string quartet brightens things up a bit and takes us on a nice little walk through the woods, while Saygun picks the room up and transports it to the foothills of Turkey. RS (Benaroya Hall, 10 pm)


Fri June 22

Copland Untuxed I'm sure the Seattle Symphony would argue that all their concerts would delight "the common man," but Copland's Third Symphony actually contains bits and pieces from the composer's triumphant Fanfare for the Common Man, which was written in the early stages of WWII as a celebration of the regular guy who fought in WWI and was now being called upon again to fight against the Nazis. It seems fitting to experience this primo example of musical populism at the symphony's "Untuxed" night, a no-intermission version of the main stage show where everybody wears jeans. You'll be in and out of there in an hour, feeling enlivened by the big brassy finale. RS (Benaroya Hall, 7 pm, $13—$46)


Sat June 23

Marc Bamuthi-Joseph and DBR: Blackbird, Fly I don't think I could describe Blackbird, Fly any better than poet and arts activist Marc Bamuthi-Joseph: "It's two Haitian men born in America; one a poet who speaks with his body, and one a violinist who uses one instrument in probably 50,000 ways." That violinist is Daniel Bernard Roumain, and his instrument sings and dances along with Bamuthi-Joseph's gorgeous and intimate stories of self discovery. RS (Orcas Center, 7:30 pm, $25)


Sun June 24

Andrea Bocelli You've undoubtedly heard the strong, soaring tenor of Italian vocal great Andrea Bocelli, arguably the most famous opera singer to reach more mainstream audiences. Part of it is sheer flooding of the market—he has 15 studio albums to his credit—but it's also savvy duets with both mega pop stars (Celine Dion, Ed Sheeran, Jennifer Lopez) and luminaries of the stage (Sarah Brightman, Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo). LP (KeyArena, 7:30 pm, $129—$370+)


June 28–July 1

Saint-Saëns Symphony No. 3 Organ They're firing up the organ for Camille Saint-Saëns's big, bold, adventurous Third Symphony, which is always a treat. Before that, Benjamin Grosvenor, a super precise, but not at all mechanical, British pianist will likely deliver a performance of Chopin's Second Piano Concerto so clean you can eat off it. And before that, we'll get a Saint-Saëns amuse bouche in Danse macabre, which sounds like the music a Viking would make after drinking a lot of coffee. RS (Benaroya Hall, $22—$122)


July 2–27

2018 Seattle Chamber Music Society Summer Festival Seattle Chamber Music Society is, once again, throwing their Summer Festival, with free informal recitals and full orchestral performances for all ages, featuring esteemed artists like Mary Lynch, Andrew Wan, Benjamin Beilman, and many more. Don't miss the Music Under The Stars series, during which a student ensemble sets up in a park and plays to folks with picnic blankets in tow, after which Benaroya Hall pipes in whatever festival performance is happening that night. (Various locations, free—$564)


July 6–21

Icicle Creek Chamber Music Festival The 24th Annual Icicle Creek International Chamber Music Festival beckons, with three weekend-long sessions of musical experiences brought to you by beloved composers and world-class artists like Oksana Ezohkina, Soon Cho, and the Avalon String Quartet. (Icicle Creek Center for the Arts, 7 pm, $12–$121)


Wed July 11

Brahms V. Radiohead The intersections and departures between two pieces of music created more than 120 years apart are explored and expanded upon in this intriguing rock and classical mash-up: the four movements of Brahms' Symphony No. 1 (circa 1876) and eight songs from Radiohead's OK Computer (1997). Seattle Symphony stages the program with support from three guest vocalists, including Andrew Lipke. LP (Benaroya Hall, 8 pm, $30—$65)


July 13–15

Star Wars: A New Hope in Concert The Seattle Symphony will perform the work of legendary composer and Hollywood score master John Williams, featuring Star Wars: A New Hope on the big screen with pitch-perfect symphonic accompaniment. (Benaroya Hall, $50—$180)


July 14–Sept 9

Olympic Music Festival The Olympic Music Festival features classical programming from everyone from Beethoven and Mozart to Schubert, and Ravel, bringing artists of the highest caliber (like internationally acclaimed Spanish cellist Pablo Ferrandez, violinist Tessa Lark, and bassist Michael Thurber) and of varied musical traditions to Port Townsend. (Joseph F. Wheeler Theater, $20–$100)


Aug 11–25

Porgy and Bess The setting: Charleston, South Carolina. The time: long ago. The story: Porgy is a beggar ("I Got Plenty o' Nuttin"); Bess is a loose woman ("Oh Bess, Oh Where's My Bess?"). The two are part of a love triangle completed by Crown, a rough and manly longshoreman. Early in the opera, a craps game happens. But the pleasures of gambling do not last long. A fight erupts. Crown kills another man, Robbins. Crown flees before the police arrive. Bess, who is hated by the other women of the ghetto, moves in with the only man, Porgy, who will offer her protection from the law. Porgy falls in love with her; Bess fails to fall totally in love with him. The opera has a sad ending. But the George Gershwin opera provided jazz with two giant standards: "Summertime" and "I Loves You, Porgy." It's also considered by many as the US's only legitimate contribution to the opera canon. CM (McCaw Hall, $25—$335)


Thurs Sept 6

Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience with Ramin Djawadi The composer of the music from the popular HBO series that has executed the most amazing long-form tease in television history (surely there has never been another show in which the thing you keep wanting to happen—war, dragons, revenge—happens least) adds a choir, an orchestra, and video visuals to bring the whole kooky thing to life. SN (KeyArena, 8 pm, $36—$96)


Sept 12–13

Distant Worlds: Final Fantasy with the Seattle Symphony The collection of music from Final Fantasy will be presented with the music of Japanese video game composer Nobu Uematsu and projected imagery from the game, conducted by Grammy-winner Arnie Roth. (Benaroya Hall, 7:30 pm, $35–$100)


Sat Sept 15

Opening Night with Ludovic Morlot & Jean-Yves Thibaudet A bittersweet, but nevertheless glamorous, opening night for music director Ludovic Morlot's final season with the symphony. Ludo should feel right at home with his fellow Frenchman, pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet, playing Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition, a perennial favorite that closes with one of the biggest bangs in all of symphonic music. After that, Thibaudet will bring the romance and high drama of Khachaturian's Piano Concerto. RS (Benaroya Hall, 5 pm)


Sundays

Compline Choir This is an excellent opportunity to lie on the floor while listening to choral music. Rich Smith wrote, "Something about the combination of the architecture, the fellowship, and the music gave me a little peek into the ineffable." (Saint Mark's Cathedral, 9:30 pm, free)


JAZZ


Mon June 11

Sérgio Mendes Sérgio Mendes has been incalculably influential on pop, jazz, and samba genres as a producer, composer, keyboardist, and vocalist. Enjoy his worldly presence as he breaks out his five-decade-spanning album catalog. (Edmonds Center for the Arts, 7:30 pm, $49—$84)


June 14–16

Ramsey Lewis With almost 68 years of recordings and live performances to his name, Chicago soul-jazz keyboardist Ramsey Lewis can bestow treasures on Triple Door's crowds for three nights in a row without repeating himself. He's always been a preternaturally smooth operator on electric and acoustic pianos, as adept with dulcet ballads as he is with rousing up-tempo jams. The man's oeuvre is an elegant joy, in any mode. DS (Triple Door, 7:30 pm, 8 pm, $55—$70)


Sat June 16

Earshot Jazz Presents: Broken Shadows with Chris Speed, Tim Berne, Dave King, and Reid Anderson I used to do the Summer Jazz program in Seattle with Chris Speed. He tried to teach me the sax altissimo range—"You just bite." Well, he was a lot better at biting—and everything else—than I was. I gave up saxophone, but Speed never did; he went off to NYC to make his bones, and now he's back to shake a tail feather. He can screech when he wants to, but he often sticks to a dry-toned line that bursts from simple phrases to long eighth-note excursions. AH (The Royal Room, 7 pm, 9:30 pm, $18)


June 16–18

Dee Daniels — My Favorite Things Daniels’ voice can dive lower and soar higher than practically anybody’s. Experience the glorious range and power of a blues, jazz, and gospel star with this special Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra presentation. (June 16: Benaroya Hall, 7:30 pm, $15–$49. June 17: Kirkland Performance Center, 2 pm, $15. June 18: Edmonds Center for the Arts, 7:30 pm, $10)


Wed June 20

GoGo Penguin A UK jazz ensemble that uses modern flourishes and incorporates elements of rock, classical, triphop, and electronic music into their compositions. Minimalist piano melodies often amp up the pace to chase, duel with, and mimic break-beats and electro-inspired rhythms in urgent staccato key plunks and breezier dancing strokes. RIYL: The Bad Plus, Portico Quartet, Medeski Martin & Wood. LP (Triple Door, 7:30 pm, $22—$30)


Thurs June 21

Nels Cline & Scott Amendola Are Stretch Woven Best known for his work with avant-Americana group Wilco, Nels Cline is a supremely versatile guitarist who's lent his nuanced clangor to outward-bound rockers and free jazzers with equal brilliance. Tonight, Cline duets with jazz phenom Scott Amendola, whose subtle percussive intelligence is PhD level. DS (Triple Door, 7:30 pm, $25/$28)


Fri June 22

D'Vonne Lewis Quartet D'Vonne Lewis is many things, but most importantly (to us, anyway) he is a graduate of the Roosevelt High School jazz program, a Stranger Genius, and Charles Mudede's favorite drummer. (Tula's, 7:30 pm, $20)


June 26–27

Jimmy Webb Even if he had only written "Wichita Lineman," Jimmy Webb would still belong in the pantheon. But of course, he also wrote about 900 of the finest mellow hit songs of the '60s, '70s, and '80s. "MacArthur Park." "Galveston." So many others. Not to mention his almost perversely interesting catalog of deep cuts. To say even less about "The Last Unicorn." He literally wrote the book about songwriting (Tunesmith, an essential text). Webb is a rare flower, and he doesn't come to town very often. This isn't to say that we need him more than want him, but it is to say that this is the very definition of the kind of show you regret not going to for all time. SN (Jazz Alley, 7:30 pm, $37)


June 28–July 1

Acoustic Alchemy In 25 years, Acoustic Alchemy has established a reputation for being one of the most engaging live bands in the business. Though the membership has rotated through the years, the current band lineup consists of Greg Carmichael, Miles Gilderdale, Fred White, and Greg and Gary Grainger. (Jazz Alley, $35)


July 10–11

Liv Warfield with NPG Hornz The Prince-approved vocalist Liv Warfield has toured extensively around the world, carefully honing her soulful sound over the years. (Jazz Alley, 7:30 pm, $34.50)


Fri July 13

Kiki Valera: La Serenata Cubana Charles Mudede has said, "You can never go wrong with Kiki Valera, who performs one of the most vibrant, soulful, and infectious forms of music in the world, Cuban jazz." (Triple Door, 8 pm, $30)


Ry Cooder, Joachim Cooder Legendary Ry Cooder has racked up quite the reputation as a skilled slide guitarist, award-winning producer for groups like the Buena Vista Social Club, and band member of Captain Beefheart's Magic Band. (Moore Theatre, 8 pm, $27—$77)


Wed July 18

Piano Starts Here: The Music of Fats Waller, Willie "The Lion" Smith, Duke Ellington, James P. Johnson, and Luckey Roberts My favorite pianists of jazz's first movement (1920s to 1940s) are, for me, James P. Johnson, Duke Ellington, and Fats Waller. The last, Waller, is mostly known for silly songs like "Your Feet's Too Big," but he was a brilliant pianist. He was certainly better than Duke Ellington, as good as Bud Powell, and as nimble as Art Tatum. CM (The Royal Room, 7:30 pm, $10/$12)


July 19–22

Nearly Dan Steely Dan were one of the smartest bands to consistently rack up platinum records. So a band dedicated to paying tribute to Steely Dan has to be sharper than your typical homage outfit. Nearly Dan's 12 members (who've played with Ray Charles, Gladys Knight, and, most importantly, Huey Lewis) are up to the task. DS (Jazz Alley, $35)


Fri July 20

Bebel Gilberto What I wrote in 2002 about first watching Brazilian singer Bebel Gilberto at the end of the first millennium still stands today: "The combination of Bebel's impressive upbringing (even her stepmother, Astrud Gilberto, was a famous singer), her sexy band members, the high-tech producers who service her music, and the whole futuristic quality of her personality and sound, generated an erotic energy that turned my mouth into a flower. My saliva was sun-sweet, and if I had spat on the hard floor, the next day a sweeper would have found on that very spot a small pile of white sugar crystals." CM (Triple Door, 7 pm, 10 pm, $35—$45)


July 22–29

Jazz Port Townsend Festival Here is what you have to do: drive onto a ferry, enter Port Townsend, and, when you finally park your car in the pretty park, roll down your window and listen to jazz music in the sun-brightened air. Cars were not made for the city, but for short trips like this. CM (Fort Worden State Park, $25—$185)


Sat July 28

Bruce Cockburn Folk and jazz-influenced singer-songwriter Bruce Cockburn is widely regarded as one of Canada’s finest exports. (Icicle Creek Center for the Arts, 7 pm, $32/$35)


Aug 2–5

Poncho Sanchez Latin Jazz Band The Poncho Sanchez Latin Jazz Band will offer plenty of chances for you to shimmy and shake to their warm, slinky, percussive-fueled rhythms. Mexican American namesake Sanchez has been rapping, tapping, and slapping congas for crowds since he played his first-ever set in the mid-1970s with renowned vibraphonist Cal Tjader. Sanchez went on to release more than 30 albums as a solo conguero (backed by a full band that currently includes players on timbales, bass, trumpet, sax, trombone, bongos, and piano), and has built on his Latin-jazzy sound with elements of R&B, soul, cha-cha, and salsa music. LP (Jazz Alley, $35)


Sat Aug 4

Chateau Ste. Michelle Festival of Jazz A whole day of live jazz classics and new interpretations from featured artists: Chris Botti, Morgan James, Sarah Niemietz and Snuffy Walden, and Tuck and Patti. (Chateau Ste. Michelle, 2 pm, $45/$65)


Tinariwen A performance by Tinariwen will transport you to the windswept sands of the Sahara Desert. Rooted in blues, rock, and Afropop, their music incorporates exotic Berber and Arabic influences, and their mix of guitars, bass, percussion, and handclaps is carried by a chorus of male voices crooning, chanting, and howling harmonies in a language you won't know, but will feel deeply in your soul. The group's members are former Tuareg rebels who came together in 1979 to make music while living as refugees in Algeria. They returned to their home in Mali in the 1990s after a cease-fire and continued to play together, though they didn't release their first album until 2001. Six LPs and a Grammy Award have followed, including last year's Elwan, recorded in tents that were set up in a southern Morocco oasis. LP (Benaroya Hall, 8 pm, $45—$60)


Aug 14–15

Ledisi: Back to Blue Vocal powerhouse Ledisi has racked up 12 Grammy nominations for her golden tones, pulling from soul, gospel, and jazz styles to create her chart-topping sound. (Jazz Alley, 7:30 pm, $41, sold out)


Aug 16–19

Maceo Parker Soulful saxophonist Maceo Parker has spent decades exploring and rewriting the history of funk in collaborations with icons like James Brown, George Clinton, and Prince, while simultaneously honing his own brand of creative showmanship. This series of shows will serve both as a celebration of Maceo's 75th birthday, as well as his latest CD release. (Jazz Alley, $41)


Fri Aug 17

Mike Dillon Band Traditionalist heads, beware: You could call what Mike Dillon does "jazz" in the broadest sense of the term—there are grooves, there are rhythms, and there are vibes. But, Dillon is a percussive force of nature, not content to remain within the genre lines. The longer he's played, the weirder his music has become; he grunts, howls, murmurs in crusty intones, and pretty much creates a musical ruckus, while playing drums and vibraphone, sometimes both at once. Definitely a must-see. LP (The Royal Room, 9:30 pm, $12/$15)


Aug 21–22

Otis Taylor Band My introduction to Otis Taylor was his third album, 2001's White African. He's from Colorado, but he took hill-country blues to heart. He sang in the voice of a black man framed for a murder, lynched, doomed to roam railroad tracks and the wilderness alongside them as a ghost, trying in vain—and already losing hope—that anyone would ever hear. Well, that cost me a few winks. The new album is called Fantasizing About Being Black, so his humor is still obstinately corrosive, and over the years he's added drums, trumpet, and a few other not-strictly-blues touches. But he's still singing about death. AH (Jazz Alley, 7:30 pm, $31)


Aug 30–Sept 2

Jane Monheit Jane Monheit sounds like she took the persona of an opera diva (not a diva diva) and assumed the diva’s point of view, but toned it down just a few notches, singing in, let’s say, her bathroom, alone. Private joy. Private sadness. AH (Jazz Alley, $33)


Sept 4–5

Larry Fuller World-class pianist Larry Fuller is deeply rooted in the hard-swinging tradition of classical jazz. A concert of his is like a master class in the history of jazz. (Jazz Alley, 7:30 pm, $16)
