  • Front Row Center: Shostakovich Symphony No. 15

    Johan Sebastian Bach is widely recognized as a giant of Western classical music. But many casual music lovers may not realize the extent of Bach’s influence on composers who came after him.

    Seattle Symphony Orchestra Music Director Ludovic Morlot ties Bach to the 21st century in the SSO’s March 23rd Masterworks Series concert. From Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, to Dmitri Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 15, and contemporary American composer John Harbison’s Bach-inspired symphony, the program will trace Bach’s musical legacy.

    Join KUOW’s Marcie Sillman and Front Row Center for the performance, and a post-show conversation with Maestro Morlot. He leaves Seattle at the end of this artistic season, so it could be your last chance to take in Morlot’s artistic vision.Receive 20% off your ticket price when you use the discount code KUOW.

  • That's Debatable: Technology Will Save Us

    Will advances in artificial intelligence, geoengineering, and bioengineering save or destroy the human race? That’s debatable.

    Join KUOW and Town Hall at the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute on Sunday, March 24 for the latest event in our That’s Debatable series. At this Oxford-style debate, a panel of smart Seattlites will square off on the proposition, “Technology will save us.”

    We'll kick things off with an audience vote. Both sides will give their arguments and then you, the audience, will vote again. The team that convinces more people to join their side wins. Will you change your mind?
