Pearl Jam's Mike McCready Set for Performance With Seattle Symphony
Pearl Jam's Mike McCready, the winner of UG's recent vote for most underrated guitarist, is set for a Benaroya Hall performance with Seattle Symphony on January 30, 2015.

The guitarist will join the symphony as a part of Sonic Evolution, a Ludovic "Ludo" Morlot-conducted series celebrating Seattle music with guest appearances of notable local musicians from a vast array of genres.

AsĀ Guerrilla Candy reports, the event's promo material indicates that the evening will feature "brand-new symphonic compositions inspired by musical icons Pearl Jam, Nirvana and more."

So this will be more than just Mike jamming Jam tunes with the orchestra, but rather a chance to hear actual new symphony pieces inspired by grunge icons. Ticket prices vary from $20 to $50, more info here.

Interestingly enough, this won't be McCready's first time rocking the Benaroya Hall, as he joined Bradi Carlile for her 2003 symphony at this very same location. Furthermore, it won't be his first time to join forces with Ludovic either, as he had performed with the maestro in 2012 at Chihuly Boathouse as part of a Seattle Symphony fundraiser.
