Mad Season joins symphony’s Sonic Evolution lineup

Seattle Symphony’s fourth annual cross-genre Sonic Evolution concert (8 p.m. Jan. 30) will include a SSO-commissioned work by Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready (during which he’ll perform, too), the SSO has announced. Other big Sonic Evolution news: McCready will also perform during the show with Mad Season — original drummer Barrett Martin,  Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan & Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell. SSO music director Ludovic Morlot will lead guest musicians and the Seattle Symphony in a debut performance of orchestral and solo arrangements of original Mad Season works.

Also on the bill: French composer Yann Robin’s “Ashes,” inspired by Nirvana; local composer Angelique Poteat’s “Beyond Much Difference,” inspired by Pearl Jam; and “Walking the Horizon,” by McCready.
