“There have been so many times I was asked about when I would ever put out a solo album. Well, the time is now. Having been unable to tour and having spent so much time at home has made a good space for creating new music.”
– Nancy Wilson
Rock icon Nancy Wilson (co-founder of the band Heart) teams up with the Seattle Symphony for a highly anticipated evening of rock 'n' roll on the Benaroya Hall stage. The show will include beloved fan favorites like “Barracuda," “These Dreams” and “Crazy on You” alongside original tracks from her brand-new solo album, You and Me, released May 7 on Carry On Music. This is Wilson's first ever solo album, and it gives her a new platform to nurture a distinctly different artistic voice, independent of the Heart sound that has largely defined her decades-long career.
This live broadcast is presented as part of The Essential Series, the Symphony's new cross-genre collaboration, curated by Seattle-based composer Andrew Joslyn, featuring voices from the Pacific Northwest.
Pay-per-view tickets are $30 and include a digital download of Nancy's new album. They can be purchased directly from the Seattle Symphony Live platform.
PLUS: A very limited number of in-person tickets are available for this unforgettable evening, the proceeds of which benefit the Seattle Symphony. These VIP packages go on sale May 19. For more information, please email Director of Special Events Samantha DeLuna at Samantha.DeLuna@seattlesymphony.org.
