Just in: Seattle Symphony announces gift by … Taylor Swiftmain
The pop star has sent the orch $50,000 in gratitude for its recording of John Luther Adams’ haunting piece, Become Ocean.
In her letter to music director Ludovic Morlot (which has not been published), Swift is said to have praised the beauty of the work and the musicianship of the orchestra. She also recalled going to hear her local symphony with her grandmother and how important that was to her.
Two years ago, we reported that she gave $100,000 to her home town Nashville Symphony.
Because she likes the things we do.
Morlot has gone on Youtube to say thanks.
The Adams session.
