Rick Steves' Europe: A Symphonic Journey

Exclusives >

Rick Steves, America's leading authority on European travel, teams up with the Seattle Symphony for a musical journey that begins in the United States and touches down in seven different European countries. This unique concert celebrates music's power to stir the patriotic soul. Playing musical tour guide, Steves utilizes his extensive knowledge of European history and culture to help set the context for each piece. Then, the orchestra performs a selection of stirring 19th-century anthems by Romantic-era composers, including Grieg, Smetana, Strauss, Elgar, Wagner and Verdi. Each selection honors a particular nationality, while the finale, Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" (Europe's official anthem) pays homage to the continent's motto of "United in Diversity." The music is accompanied by a montage of evocative video images from each country.

Aubrey Logan with the Seattle Symphony

Exclusives >

Whether she’s jammin’ on her trombone or breezing through a song with her nothing-held-back, multi-octave vocals, Seattleite Aubrey Logan captivates audiences. She’s been called “The Queen of Sass” and it’s easy to see why. Her concerts are a mix of excellent musicality, jaw-dropping vocals, expert trombone-playing, a breathtaking array of originals, unique takes on cover songs and, well … fun!

Her heart-wrenching musical stories have audiences in tears just before her comedic relief has them in stitches. Aubrey Logan trained in trombone performance at Berklee College of Music and soon after made her way to Los Angeles, with dreams of becoming L.A.’s “most cerebral musician with a personality.” She created her own path, lining up professional work with acts as disparate as the Boston Pops, Pharrell, Josh Groban, Seth McFarlane and Meghan Trainor. At the same time, Logan amassed a huge online following thanks to her performances with the YouTube phenomenon Postmodern Jukebox.
