SPOKANE—May 14, 2018…The Spokane Symphony presents “Round Two” of the witty and completely unorthodox nightclub-style music and comedy series, “The M Show,” created and hosted by Concertmaster Mateusz Wolski, who is known for his competitive edge on violin and his unusual car racing hobby.
“The M Show: Music, Mayhem & Mystery,” debuted in January 2018. This new episode takes place on Thursday, May 24 and Friday, May 25 at 8:00 p.m. at the Washington Cracker Co. Building at 304 W. Pacific Avenue in downtown Spokane.
“The M Show” has the feel of a late night comedy show, with a mixture of humor, video skits, and music, including both short classical selections and rock/pop favorites. For the upcoming performances, Wolski will be joined on stage by an ensemble of Spokane Symphony musicians, plus special guest, beatboxer extraordinaire, Eli Dyer.
“I’m an autocross racer in my spare time, and I love setting up and solving challenging “What ifs?” just as much as I love music,” Wolski said.
The new “M Shows” will include live classical and pop music; a comical exploration of the sound of speed; a competition in lung power; and an “American Idol-style” video spoof of the Symphony’s upcoming search for a new conductor, featuring cameo appearances by Spokane Mayor David Condon, KREM2 Meteorologist Tom Sherry, and comedian Phillip Kopczynski.
“The M Show” will continue its run in the upcoming 73rd season of the Spokane Symphony, starting in September 2018.
“What we love about this show is its unique spin on classical music, plus it brings out our personalities behind the instruments. The casual, late night feel changes the dynamics for the audience and the musicians. Mateusz is such a natural at coming up with hilarious bits, pranks and spoofs for some good laughs along with great music,” said Jeff vom Saal, executive director of the Spokane Symphony.
Tickets for “The M Show” are $25 for general admission standing; $36 for general admission seating; and $60 for V.I.P. table seating and may be purchased at www.spokanesymphony.org, (509) 624-1200, or in person at the Box Office of Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox at 1001 W. Sprague Avenue.BACK
