Denver-based indie rock band DeVotchKa is a melting pot of genres — a quartet whose lush, dreamlike sound can be easily mistaken for that of an entire orchestra. Now DeVotchKa returns to the Benaroya Hall stage, pairing up with the Seattle Symphony to translate their intimate melodies into a full-scale orchestral experience.
For more than a decade DeVotchKa has been melting its sweeping influences into an authentic and totally original blend of rock ‘n roll. The little band from Denver was suddenly known all across the nation, playing large venues and major music festivals, including Coachella, Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza and Glastonbury.
Pablo Rus Broseta is Associate Conductor of the Seattle Symphony, having originally been appointed Assistant Conductor in 2015. During the 2017–2018 season, he leads the Seattle Symphony in a wide variety of concerts, including an all-Russian program with pianist Beatrice Rana, Carmina burana and a festival of Prokofiev concertos.
