2006 | Symphony Seattle

This love letter back to the city he was born and raised in was a gem for any Seattlite as it inventively shined a light on the beauty and uniqueness of the city of Seattle. He choreographed Pike Place Fishmongers to dance with 40 lb salmon and made a cup of coffee with a Starbucks barista and the orchestra. Safari pirates sang and the Seattleites in attendance joined in! The concert opened and closed with a beautiful song and blessing of a Native American singer. This concert has gone on to be the pieces Mateo has performed most outside of it’s original premiere.

Featuring Seafair Pirstes, Pike Place Fishmongers, Native American Arlie Neskahi, Busbee, Starbucks Barista, Bainbridge Chorale and patient musician Matt Shim
