Scaling 'The Wall'
By Winter Dorval - Staff Reporter
The Seattle Rock Orchestra will be performing Pink Floyd The Wall in Kent this weekend.
This concert will be held at the Kentwood Performing Arts Center.
The Seattle Rock Orchestra formed in 2008, and are approaching their 10 year anniversary.
The band members were part of their own rock bands, and have a classical education.
"The touring Orchestra can be anywhere from 22 to 50 or 60 people, depending on the size of the venue," said Teske.
"We wanted to try to integrate classical music into the rock world," said bassist Scott Teske.
This will be their second Performance at the Kentwood Performing Arts Center.
"We would love to make it an annual thing," said Teske.
"The city of Kent chose Pink Floyd for us to play. They thought it would be a big hit with the people of Kent," said Teske.
Their last concert was Led Zeppelin.
The Wall is one of the shows that we perform the most, said Teske. "It's definitely a favorite of the orchestra to pull out and play."
The concert willÂ be on Jan. 26 at 7:30 p.m.
The address is 10020 SE 256th St, Kent.
Tickets are $10 for general admission, seniors, and youth.
