Early music and new music intertwine like never before. Experience Strange Seasons, the world premiere of a concerto for electric theorbo by Seattle-based composer Aaron Grad and performed by John Lenti. Former KING 5 meteorologist Jeff Renner narrates sonnets for each movement inspired by Seattle’s unique weather patterns. Jean-Féry Rebel’s Les éléments conveys the chaos that preceded the Creation, and Jean-Baptiste Lully’s Suite des quatre saisons dances through the seasons. Hear our world through the music of yesterday and today.

Single tickets go on sale August 1.

“The theorbo had a vigorous but rather brief life in the 17th and 18th centuries, and its electrified descendant proved to be capable of both heart-throbbing pathos and modest, folksy longing.” -The Washington Post
