In 1969, Led Zeppelin changed rock 'n 'roll forever, delivering a one-two punch with the releases of Led Zeppelin and Led Zeppelin II inside of the same year. Seattle Rock Orchestra celebrates these pop culture milestones, performing every blistering, hard rock and blues riff from Zeppelin’s explosive debut and smashing sophomore albums. Featuring the songs “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You,” “Dazed and Confused,” “Bring It On Home,” “Whole Lotta Love,” “Ramble On,” and many more.
Seattle Rock Orchestra doesn't hide behind a rock band ... it is the rock band! SRO utilizes strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion, and a rotating cast of exciting guest vocalists to deliver high energy tribute shows unlike any other. SRO was founded in 2008 by bassist, composer, and educator Scott Teske. Music Director and Conductor extraordinaire Kim Roy quickly came aboard in 2010 to tame our unruly gang of musical misfits with her unique panache. In 2012, SRO began its expansion into a full-fledged arts organization with the introduction of the Seattle Rock Orchestra Summer Intensive, a week long summer day camp for middle & high school musicians, which now hosts two sessions at Seattle's Moore Theatre and at Kirkland Performance Center.
Over the years SRO has racked up an impressive resume that includes collaborations with the likes of Elvis Costello, Macklemore, DeVotchKa, Sir Mix-a-Lot, Damien Jurado, DRAM, Allen Stone, and members of Big Star, The Posies, R.E.M., Nada Surf, and Pearl Jam, on stages across Washington State, including Seattle's Paramount, Moore & Neptune Theatres, Sasquatch Music Festival, Summer Meltdown Festival, and Timber Outdoor Music Festival.
Seattle Rock Orchestra believes in the power of music and the arts to heal, nourish, inspire and invigorate. SRO is committed to producing experiences that entertain, educate, and foster community, while continuing the performance and study of orchestral music as a vibrant and vital art form.
