Yesterday evening, the Seattle Symphony presented ‘Music Beyond Borders: Voices From the Seven’ to a full crowd in the S. Mark Taper Foundation Auditorium, requiring a simulcast to a separate recital hall due to an incredible demand for tickets. The concert featured music by composers from around the world, brought together by Music Director Ludovic Morlot.
Ludovic commented: “Our musicians and I are passionate about using our art form to create connections with others and celebrate the diversity of our community … Many of our musicians are immigrants themselves, so when they suggested we create a concert like this, we enthusiastically embraced the opportunity to bring the universal power of music to speak across boundaries and borders.”
Tickets to the performance were free, and reserved within hours of the concert being announced. The concert was streamed live and is now available on YouTube.
