Known for stretching the boundaries of music and seamlessly tying together multiple genres of pop, funk, R&B, folk-rock, hip-hop, jazz, soul, new wave and psychedelic, there is no comparison to Prince's distinct sound. Now, hear his iconic music performed as never before with the Seattle Symphony, featuring guest conductor Brent Havens, vocalist Marshall Charloff and a full rock band taking you on a symphonic tribute to this music and pop culture icon! This remarkable show features hits like “Purple Rain,” “When Doves Cry,” “Little Red Corvette,” “Kiss” and more.
Berklee-trained arranger/conductor Brent Havens has written music for orchestras, feature films and virtually every kind of television.
Marshall Charloff, front man for The Purple Xperience, imaginatively styles the magic of Prince's talent in an uncannily unmatched fashion with his appearance, vocal imitation, and multi-instrumental capacity on guitar, piano, bass and drums. Marshall Charloff taught himself to play the guitar at the age of 15 and later taught himself the piano, bass, and drums. He is a celebrated producer and recording artist, skills that paved the way for Marshmallow Fields, a 1990s production team consisting of Marshall, Grammy winner John Fields (The Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, and Switchfoot), and Steven "Funkytown" Greenberg. Their single charted on the Billboard Top 100 dance charts and is still in rotation amongst DJs around the country. Although Charloff and Fields shared co- production credits, the release was executive produced by Steven Greenberg.
