On Friday night, the Seattle Symphony presented the latest event in their Sonic Evolution series. This included three world premieres, where the composers were invited to draw their inspiration from non-classical musical genres in the city. Gabriel Prokofiev composed a piece based on the work of hip-hop legend Sir Mix-A-Lot. The legend himself then appeared on stage to perform ‘Baby Got Back’, orchestrated by Gabriel Prokfiev.
