At KING FM we don’t only broadcast great music, we also play it! Join KING FM’s hosts Lisa Bergman, piano and Dave Beck, cello with other KING FM personalities Geoffrey Larson, clarinet; Christophe Chagnard, guitar and special guests, Pearl Django’s founder Neil Andersson on guitar, and Rick Leppanen on bass. Our eclectic program will feature music by Debussy, Grieg, Brahms, Schumann, Beethoven, and some surprises. Station Manager Bryan Lowe will awe you with his collection of rare and exotic instruments including his Theremin and Cristal Baschet which you will be able to see and even try up-close.
Art leaves the gallery and becomes an interactive and musical experience in Classical KING FM’s Music Art Mashup! Four artists from Gage Academy will be presented with 30-minute art challenges, creating art with paint, glue and found objects, inspired by live classical music performances by the Skyros String Quartet. The audience will participate in the creation as well. Join us for the magic of spontaneous art and music collaboration, hands-on with the audience!
The genre-defying TangleTown Trio creates a magical evening of song and storytelling with classical Americana inspired by the many unique genres of American music including art song, jazz, folk, and classic musical theatre. Join celebrated mezzo-soprano Sarah Mattox, Steinway Artist Judith Cohen, and violinist Jo Nardolillo as we revel in our favorites of the holiday season, from the traditional Holly and Ivy to the rollicking Renaissance song Wassail (complete with nyckelharpa), through the exquisite folk song I Wonder as I Wander to a swinging jazz Winter Wonderland.
Early Music Underground
Saturday, February 11, 2017 at 7:30pm
Early Music Underground presents Baroque-n-Hearts: Music for (and against) Valentine’s Day. Acclaimed soprano Linda Tsatsanis joins the EMU string band for a celebration of love in all its forms, from the sublime to the bawdy, through music by Vivaldi, Monteverdi, Barbara Strozzi, Elizabeth Turner, and more.
Seattle Marimba Quartet thinks way outside the box when it comes to percussion – and classical music. Join us for a showcase classical favorites (Bach, Mahler, Ravel), a unique blend of drumming styles from around the world, and modern marimba repertoire from the 20th and 21st centuries. Best of all, YOU will have a chance to learn and perform Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, and African drumming rhythms right along with them! Presented by Second Inversion, KING FM’s project dedicated to rethinking classical music.
Back by popular demand after a rousing concert last season, the Seattle Rock Orchestra Quintet (along with the mesmerizing Tamara Power-Drutis) transforms popular song into art song, performing a program that reimagines both classic and modern songs as intimate and emotional chamber works born for the recital hall. Presented by Second Inversion, KING FM’s project dedicated to rethinking classical music.
Edmund Stone is the celebrated host of “The Score with Edmund Stone”, presented every Saturday and Sunday at 4pm on KING FM. Join him and pianist extraordinaire Michael Refvem for a LIVE version of this famous syndicated show featuring stories, visuals and live music exploring the finest in cinema scoring. You will hear music and expert commentary on such timeless classics as E.T., The Pianist, Princess Mononoke, and other gems.
