Sir Mix-A-Lot Backed It Up With The Seattle Symphony
Oh My Gawd BECKY! Look at this video.
90s one hit wonder, Sir Mix-A-Lot took his chart topper, “Baby Got Back” to the Seattle Symphony Orchestra and it was an awesome hot mess. So much bad dancing, so much booty shaking, on the stage of the symphony!!
Why was Mix-A-Lot on the stage with the Seattle Symphony in the first place? It is all part of the “Sonic Evolution” project. Trying to bridge the symphony with pop culture.
Now in its third year, Seattle Symphony’s critically acclaimed Sonic Evolution project creates a bridge between the Symphony and Seattle’s storied reputation as launching pad for some of the most creative musicians on the popular music scene. Each year, in celebration of the past, present and future of our city’s musical legacy, Ludovic Morlot and the Seattle Symphony commission world-class composers to write orchestral world premieres inspired by bands and artists that launched from, or are related to, Seattle.
