Gene Kelly: A Life in Music

March 17–19
Benaroya Hall


Music was central to Gene Kelly’s work. It influenced him, inspired him, and in many ways, defined him. In 1969 the musical arrangements to many of MGM’s classic films were destroyed. Now with these scores carefully reconstructed, we bring you a remarkable event: Gene Kelly dancing on the big screen accompanied live by the Seattle Symphony! Hosted by Kelly’s wife and biographer, Patricia Ward Kelly, this special event takes you behind the scenes to share Gene Kelly’s own insights about the making of these enduring works.
