“Baby Got Back” with an orchestra equals a damn good time. Sir Mix-A-Lot performed his Grammy-winning hit with the Seattle Symphony at Benaroya Hall Saturday, June 7. The classic rap song got a classical treatment but stuck to its roots as 25 unsuspecting women hopped on stage to shake it to the booty praising track.
The performance is part of the Seattle Symphony’s Sonic Evolution project, in which composers write orchestral compositions inspired by the work of bands and singers from the city.
