2007 | Symphony Legacy

This rocking concert sold out within 2 weeks as Mateo’s guests were the world reknowned Wilson sisters of Heart and the comeback of Seattle’s beloved rock band, Alice In Chains. Mateo’s orchestrations behind these legends supported magnificient and larger than life performances. Visually, Mateo hid the entire orchestra and lit them up by silhouettes for two of the pieces. It was a true springboard as it launched the fundraising side of this concert series from the tens of thousands into the hundreds of thouands of dollars raised for kids and families at Seattle Children’s Hospital.

Featuring Heart, Alice In Chains, NW Girlchoir, Aaron Straight on didgeridoo, flamenco guitarist Andre Feriante, salsa dancers, Tessa George Dance Troupe and patient musician Taylor Carol (recent Harvard graduate)
