"Had Seu Jorge not recorded my songs acoustically in Portuguese I would never have heard this new level of beauty which he has imbued them with." – David Bowie
Brazilian troubadour Seu Jorge joins the Seattle Symphony to celebrate the music of David Bowie through the lens of his role in Wes Anderson’s whimsical film The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, performing covers of Bowie’s “Ziggy Stardust,” “Suffragette City,” “Space Oddity” and more.
Pablo Rus Broseta is Associate Conductor of the Seattle Symphony, having originally been appointed Assistant Conductor in 2015.

Jorge Mário da Silva was born in 1970 in Belford Roxo in Rio de Janeiro, and soon knew that he wanted to be a musician. He went through several jobs since he was 10 years old, was a frequenter of dances and samba wheels in Rio and started singing early in the evening. He left home at age 19 and was a homeless for a few years, where he made his first contact with the theater. Discovered by clarinetist Paulo Moura, he auditioned for a musical and since then his life has completely changed.
