Updated March 28, 2020: In an effort to reduce the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), all Seattle Symphony performances are either canceled or postponed through May 31, 2020. This performance is rescheduled from March 28 and 29 to August 8 and 9.

The Legendary Count Basie Orchestra celebrates 85 years of classic Basie swing! This historic orchestra, directed by Scotty Barnhart, brings to Benaroya Hall such seminal big band hits as “April in Paris,” “One O’ Clock Jump,” “Li’l Darlin” and “Shiny Stockings.” Winners of 18 Grammy Awards and known as “the most explosive force in jazz,” they will be joined by vocalist Carmen Bradford for tributes to Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan.
