"Seattle Rock Orchestra doesn't hide behind a rock band ... it is the rock band!"
Seattle Rock Orchestra invites you to watch them perform Pink Floyd’s greatest hits at the Moore Theatre on Saturday, October 7, 2023! Seattle Rock Orchestra prides itself in honoring featured artist's lasting legacy by utilizing strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion, and a rotating cast of exciting guest vocalists. The orchestra is excited to show you a concert filled with fun yet profoundly moving sounds.
The album “Dark Side of the Moon” was released in 1973 by the famous indie progressive rock band Pink Floyd. Even after 50 years since its release, the album remains the third best-selling of all time, just behind Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” and AC/DC’s “Back in Black”. Even though the album featured sensitive topics about money, politics, mental health and a more “psychedelic” sound, themes considered taboo in the 1970s, the album became Pink Floyd’s official claim to international stardom. The album has remained timeless and indeed left a significant impact on the music industry.
The album's legacy in the music industry has persisted to this day, and the Seattle Rock Orchestra will be reimagining the iconic album through their signature sound. The Seattle Rock Orchestra is a rock band that considers themselves to be “musical misfits” because they incorporate rock elements into their orchestra performances and primarily hold performances that honor iconic artists in the music industry. The orchestra has also collaborated with several known acts, such as rapper Macklemore and two-time Grammy award-winning songwriter Elvis Costello.
“Dark Side of the Moon” is one of the band’s most frequently performed shows, and rightfully so because the band’s performance of the album features the Seattle Rock Orchestra’s unique musical rearrangement of the entire album with guest solo singers from every section of the orchestra.
Since the Seattle Rock Orchestra is under the Seattle Theatre Group, this event will be held at the Moore Theatre, a venue hosting all kinds of performances since 1907 in downtown Seattle.
You certainly would not want to miss the chance to witness and experience the musical greatness of the Seattle Rock Orchestra and their performance of “Dark Side of the Moon”. Book your tickets now!
