2009 | Symphony of the Superhero

To date this is Mateo’s favorite symphony. This concert explores heroes, villains, and everything these fables sand stories have inspired. He studiend superhero themes with a creative film music executive from Warner Brothers and then spent 10 days in Buenos Aires writing for 5-10 hours at a piano every day. From the 30 pieces he wrote he culled it down to 10 songs that inspired heorism, fear, flight, bravery, and more. He connected these themes to the nurses and doctors at the hospital with cancer being the nemesis and the patients being the superheroes leading the charge.

Featuring DJ Cut Chemist, violinist Lili Haydn, Seattle Children’s Chorus, The Malandros, The Raretones Choir, Nataly Dungey and patient musician Rishi Nair
