A Note from Nancy Wilson:
“I want this concert to be a celebration for all my fans to be able to attend. We can’t gather here for a great night like that right now — but we are so close to the end of this terrible pandemic. My hope is to share this music and my performance alongside the orchestra with as many people as possible. These extra months will make all the difference and give us a chance to get together and let go of the tough times we’ve had.”
“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.
